Chicken Saltimbocca

Pat Duran


This recipe is from Kristin Kossak, who says her mom used to make this dish and it's one of her favorites-mine too-.
Traditionally, it's made with veal, but she created this version since chicken is easier to find.
This is another of my favorites now and my family is very impressed with this dish too!
Thanks Kristin- hugs, Pat
