“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


  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 pounds), cut up and skin removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham, chopped
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage or 1 teaspoon dried sage leaves
  • 1 garlic clove, minced


  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, brown chicken on all sides in oil and butter.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Remove chicken and keep warm. Bring sauce to a boil; cook for 10-12 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 3/4 cup. Serve with chicken.
