I made this for Lunchner, that weird time between lunch and dinner. It happens mostly on the weekends. You know because you sleep in on the weekend and have brunch. It makes sense that if you have brunch you then have lunchner. Right?
Don’t give me that look! Lunchner is a real thing. I know they don’t offer it in restaurants and such, but if there is a brunch it it would stand to reason there is a lunchner.
Ok…so, I made lunchner up, but I think I have a legitimate argument. If it did exist this dish would be perfect. It’s filling but not heavy and very, very satisfying. I should know I just had a heaping plateful. Not the plate below that would be excessive although I wouldn’t put it past my abilities.
Saltimbocca is Italian for “jumps in mouth” and this dish does just that. I love this chicken! The prosciutto gives it just the right touch of saltiness, the sage a hearty earthiness and the lemon brightens the dish and makes it jump in your mouth. It’s literally a party in your mouth!
Kale salad with shaved parmesan seemed like the perfect pairing for lemon chicken saltimbocca. Kale loves lemon and prosciutto and I love it! It’s oh so satisfying and good for you, which is perfect for those still trying or/and on track with their New Year’s Resolutions.
