  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. salted butter
  • 12 fresh sage leaves
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc or none alcoholic wine
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the flour in a shallow bowl and dredge the chicken through the flour mix, pressing gently to adhere.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. When the oil is shimmers, add the chicken and sear on both sides until golden, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
  3. To the same skillet, add the butter and sage. Sear the sage until crisp, about 1 minute. Remove the sage from the skillet and add to the plate with the chicken. Pour the wine and lemon juice into the skillet, cook 1 minute. Add the capers and season with salt and pepper. Return the chicken to the skillet and simmer for 5-10 minutes or until warmed through.
  4. Meanwhile, make the pasta. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water. Drain.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the garlic, thyme, and a pinch each of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  6. Pour in the cream and 1/4 cup pasta cooking water. Add the pasta, parmesan, and manchego cheese. Toss until the cheese is melted and the sauce creamy.
  7. To serve, divide the pasta among plates and top with the chicken and sage. Spoon over the pan sauce.

Serve & Indulge!
