4 t. EVOO, divided

Sprinkle chicken cutlets evenly with salt. Place 3 sage leaves on each chicken cutlet; wrap 2 prosciutto slices around each cutlet, securing the sage leaves in place.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 T. oil to the skillet, swirling to coat pan. Add wrapped chicken cutlets to the pan; cook cutlets 2 minutes on each side or until cutlets are done. Remove chicken cutlets from pan to a platter and keep warm.

Add cornstarch mixture and remaining 1 t. evoo to pan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cook mixture for 1 minute or until the sauce is slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
