Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 30 mins


  • 4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, sliced or pounded thin
  • kosher salt
  • freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1⁄3 cup fresh sage leaves, (a generous handful)
  • 1⁄2 cup white wine, or low-sodium chicken broth
  • lemon juice, from 1⁄2 lemon, use the other half for serving as wedges


  1. Season both sides of the chicken breasts generously with salt and pepper.

  2. Place the flour in a shallow bowl or plate, then dredge each piece of chicken to form a light coating, shaking gently to remove any excess.

  3. Add butter and olive oil to a large skillet set over medium-high heat.

  4. When butter melts, add the chicken and saute for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until cooked through and lightly golden.

  5. Place the chicken on a plate, cover with foil, and set it aside.

  6. Add the remaining butter to the skillet. When butter has melted, add sage leaves.

  7. Allow the butter to brown and bubble, for about 2 to 3 minutes, until it begins to give off a nutty aroma.

  8. Remove sage to a paper towel-lined plate, leaving the butter in the skillet.

  9. Add lemon juice and wine or broth to the skillet. Simmer the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

  10. Taste sauce and adjust with more salt and pepper, if desired.

  11. When the sauce is slightly thickened, return chicken to the skillet to warm through, then top with sage, garnish with additional lemon wedges, and serve.
