SALTIMBOCCA ALLA ROMANA

4 (5-ounce) sliced turkey cutlets (scallopini)
4 slices thinly sliced prosciutto
8
fresh sage leaves, plus more for garnish
All-purpose flour, for dredging
Kosher salt and freshly
ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons dry white wine

1/4 cup chicken broth
Lemon wedges, for serving

Put the cutlets side by side on a sheet of plastic wrap. Lay a piece of prosciutto on top of each piece of turkey and cover with another piece of plastic. Gently flatten the cutlets with a rolling pin or meat mallet, until the pieces are about 1/4-inch thick and the prosciutto has adhered to the turkey.

Remove the plastic wrap and lay a couple of sage leaves in the center of each cutlet. Weave a toothpick in and out of the turkey to secure the prosciutto and sage. Put some flour in a shallow platter and season with a fair amount of salt and pepper; mix with a fork to combine. Dredge the turkey in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess.

Heat the oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter and in a large skillet over medium flame. Put the turkey in the pan, prosciutto-side down first. Cook for 3 minutes to crisp it up and then flip the turkey over and saute the other side for 2 minutes, until golden. Transfer the saltimbocca to a serving platter, remove the toothpicks, and keep warm.

Add the wine to the pan, stirring to bring up all the delicious flavor in the bottom; let the wine cook down for a minute to burn off some of the alcohol. Add the chicken broth and remaining tablespoon of butter, swirl the pan around. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce over the saltimbocca, garnish with sage leaves and lemon wedges; serve immediately.
