Featured Recipe: Easy Chicken Saltimbocca
When the weather is hot and humid outside I spend a lot of time planning my next food and travel adventure. It’s a way for me to escape: the heat, the job, life, at least for just a while. And the great thing is it usually inspires me to get in the kitchen and create something based on the culinary adventure I just took in my living room.
This week I “went” to Italy and became entranced with all the different versions of Saltimbocca. Traditionally made with veal, prosciutto and sage, I opted for chicken and basil for my version. Mainly because that was what was in the frig and garden right now, but also because those flavors are so enticing in the heat.
Saltimbocca literally means “jump in the mouth” and you will certainly agree with the sentiment as you finish the pan sauce and walk this yummy dinner to the table. It’s a simple, yet divinely elegant meal that will transport you straight to the streets of Rome, at least for you’re a moment.

What you're saying..
You two are my life-savers! One day, in a coffee-house bookstore, I discovered a strange and mesmerizing cookbook ... and I had to tell you how much I've used and appreciated your approach to cooking. Your cookbook literally changed our lives. You have probably brought more families to the dinner table at home than you can know. And for that, I and my loved ones are grateful.
