Nick’s Chicken Saltimbocca
‘This chicken saltimbocca is my kids’ favouring thing – something about the combination of the proscuitto, chicken breast and crispy sage is so good. The non-original addition we make is to add grated Parmesan at the end. It goes slightly melted and adds a lovely additional layer of flavour. We have it with linguine tossed in butter.
Chicken is obviously such a great choice for everyday meals. Actually even a roast chicken is one of my favourite things in the world. I love chicken so much I wrote a book about it ‘Nick’s Top 100 Chicken Recipes’. Still available on Amazon!
There’s not much that’s tastier than a butterflied chicken breast – ie opened out into a lovely heart shape – basted in crushed garlic, rosemary and olive oil, and grilled on the barbecue, served with a big salad and a glass of crisp white wine.
For colder days, our family favourite is my tarragon chicken saute. A one-pot dish with chopped up chicken breast, and a lovely creamy mushroom, tarragon and whisky sauce.’
