Prosciutto Chicken in Wine Sauce Recipe

“Last year, I decided to grow basil, sage and thyme. The scent of sage is very enticing to me, so I included it in this recipe. The rest just happened.” - Lorraine Caland — Thunder Bay, Ontario

  • 4 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham, chopped

"It was good -- very moist and smelled great. I don't think it was anything "special." I did not use sage as I did not have it so I used Rosemary. I bought thinly sliced honey ham. It was easy to prepare and can easily be made with ingredients on hand."
