Nikki’s Chicken Scallopine with Sage and Fontina Cheese


6 chicken cutlets pounded thin
Salt and Pepper
6 Sage leaves
3 ounces grated fontina cheese
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove halved
1/2 cup white wine
1 can (28 oz) whole San Marzano tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper


Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place one sage leaf crosswise on each of the pieces of chicken. Sprinkle each of the pieces of chicken with 1/2 oz of fontina cheese. Roll up chicken and seal with one or two toothpicks.

Warm olive oil and halved garlic clove in large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken. Brown the chicken on all sides, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pan and remove and discard garlic. Add the wine and simmer for 2 minutes while scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.

Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes and red pepper flakes in a blender until smooth. Add the tomato mixture to the reduced wine in the pan. Simmer for 5 minutes to let the flavors marry.

Return the chicken to the pan. Simmer the chicken in the tomato sauce for 10 minutes. Turn the chicken over and simmer until cooked through, 5 to 7 mins.

Remove the chicken from the pan. Season the tomato sauce with salt and pepper. Spoon the tomato sauce onto serving plates or a serving platter. Slice the chicken into 1 inch rounds. Place the chicken over the sauce and serve immediately.
