Add something exotic to your repertoire. This dish is another classic that substitutes chicken for veal, this time with a complement of Italian spices and ham that will give your mouth something to sing about. Saltimbocca literally means "jumps in the mouth," and refers to the use of a whole sage leaf in one of the more traditional ways to prep this dish. Whether you use smoked ham or thinly sliced prosciutto and provolone cheese, chicken saltimbocca will give you a new appreciation for the flavors of the Mediterranean and a lusty appetite for more recipes that expertly blend meats and a host of spices.
