One of my must read blogs is The Moptop Maven. There’s no other way to describe her than just awesome. She offers daily info on hair care, fashion, recipes and just about everything else.

So when she posted a Chicken Saltimbocca recipe from Giada De Laurentiis, I had to try it. The ingredients are simple, preparation was easy and it’s seriously one of the most enjoyable meals I’ve prepared in a long time. And the best part? It averages out to $2-$3 per serving, way cheaper than any restaurant meal.

Thinly sliced chicken cutlet: $4.69 for four slices
Proscuitto: $3 for 1/4 lb (8 slices)
Spinach: $1
Grated Parmesan: $3
Broth: $2
Lemons: $1

{season chicken with salt and pepper. Layer a slice of proscuitto, drained spinach and parmesan cheese on the chicken}

{roll the chicken and secure with a toothpick}

{cook the chicken in olive oil for a few minutes on each side, until brown. Add broth and lemon juice. Heat on hight until it reaches a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes}

Be sure to remove the toothpicks. I added a side of potatoes (roast for an hour with salt, pepper, rosemary and olive oil) and drizzled the liquid from the chicken over the potatoes.

{sorry the plate looks so sparse. I started eating before I realized I needed to snap some pics}
