Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Cook 7 mins to 8 mins


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 head broccoli, trimmed and cut into flowereclovests
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 4 thin-cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1-1/4 pounds total)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 fresh sage leaves
  • 4 ounces thin-sliced prosciutto
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup marsala wine
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Make It


1. In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Add broccoli, salt and red-pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Keep warm.


2. Meanwhile, place chicken on flat work surface; season with salt, Italian seasoning and black pepper. Place 2 sage leaves on each piece; cover each with 1 ounce of prosciutto. With the sharp side of a chefs knife pointed up, gently pound chicken so prosciutto adheres to chicken.

3. In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Place chicken, prosciutto side down, in skillet; cook until prosciutto is nicely seared, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn chicken over; cook until internal temperature registers 170 degrees F on instant-read thermometer, about 2 minutes. Remove to a warm plate.

4. Off heat, add marsala wine to skillet. Return to heat; scrape up any browned bits from bottom of skillet. In small bowl, stir together beef broth and cornstarch. Add to skillet. Bring to simmering; simmer until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

5. To serve, spread broccoli on a large serving platter. Place chicken on top and spoon sauce over chicken. Serve with buttered orzo on the side, if desired.
