4 skinless chicken breasts
Ground black pepper
8 slices Parma ham
8 large, fresh sage leaves
25 g (1oz) plain flour
1 tbsp olive oil
50 g (2oz) butter
Splash of vermouth or marsala or a sprig of fresh rosemary


Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally to make two thinner, flatter escalopes. Put each escalope between cling film and bat out with a rolling pin, to a depth of about 1cm (1.2in), being careful not to tear them. Season well.

Wrap a slice of Parma ham around each escalope. Top with a sage leaf and secure with a cocktail stick, by pushing it through the layers and back up, like a shallow stitch.
Season the flour with salt and pepper and dust each escalope lightly on both sides.

Heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan until foaming. Sauté the escalopes sage-side down for 2 minutes over a high heat. Turn over, add the vermouth or marsala and cook for a further 2 minutes.
