serves 6 ( 6 points +)
- 6 ( 4 oz) chicken cutlets
- dried sage
- salt and pepper
- 6 thin slices prosciutto ( about 2 oz.)
- 4 oz. sharp provolone cheese, cut into 6 thin slices
- 1 T. olive oil
- 1 tsp. butter
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- ⅓ c. Marsala wine
Pound cutlets between two sheets of plastic wrap until thin. Sprinkle with sage, salt and pepper. Place a piece of prosciutto and cheese down the center of each chicken cutlet. Roll, jelly-roll fashion and secure with toothpicks.
Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet. Brown chicken on all sides. Remove from pan. Add onion and cook until tender. Add Marsala and browned chicken back into the pan. Cover and simmer on medium- low for about 8 minutes or until cooked through.
