Wanna Try Something New???


Well I am hear to report that the hubster and I have so far completed our dining in commitment- Yes I know it is only January 4th but it makes me laugh to think that we are 4 days strong! ha!

Tonight I have two different things for you. One will have you drooling and heading to the kitchen, the other will have you day dreaming and party planning.

Any guesses?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Well I received a subscription to Cooking Light for Christmas and it has been an immense help in planning out our meals

The first meal that I tried from the January subscription is the:
Lemony Chicken Saltimbocca
- Sorry for the small picture (this is why I want to become more techy on my blog)
4 chicken cutlets ( I used chicken breasts)
1/8 teaspoon salt
12 fresh sage leaves (I used Basil leaves)
2 ounces very thin bacon or prosciutto
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup fat free low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
Lemon wedges(optional)

1. Sprinkle the chicken evenly with salt. Place 2 sage or basil leaves on each chicken breast. Wrap bacon or prosciutto slices around the cutlet.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to the pan, and swirl to coat. Add chicken to pan;cook for 2 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan, keep warm
3.Combine broth, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a small bowl; stir with a whisk until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture and the remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil  to the pan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Spoon sauce over chicken and pasta.
