  • 4 chicken breast on the bone, skin on
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage leaves
  • Several cloves of garlic peeled
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine I used Pinot Grigio or a combo of wine and stock.


  • Sprinkle the chicken on all sides with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons butter and the olive oil in a large sauté pan. When foam from the butter subsides, brown the chicken on both sides over medium high heat, about 5 minutes per side.
  • Add sage leaves, garlic and wine to the pan. Cover, lower the heat to medium and cook 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from pan (total cook time should be 30 minutes, but will vary depending on the size of the chicken). Adjust heat to medium-high and boil wine until syrup. Remove pan from heat and stir in remaining butter.
  • Serve chicken with sauce, rice, noodles or bread to soak up the sauce.
  • Note From Anna: This makes 4 servings. If you are using super-gigantic grocery store bone-in chicken breasts, you can cut two in half horizontally (go right through the bone) with a chef's knife and still get 4 servings.
