For a special event dinner, or just because it’s Tuesday, try this fabulous, low-calorie entrée

for ingredients please go to the site. It's yummy

1. Sprinkle chicken cutlets evenly with salt. I like to cover with plastic wrap and lightly pound with a meat tenderizing hammer to make the meat suppler. Place 3 sage leaves on each chicken cutlet, securing the sage in place with wooden toothpicks or butchers string.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to the skillet, swirling to coat pan. Add wrapped chicken cutlets to the pan; cook cutlets 2 minutes on each side or until the cutlets are done. Remove the cutlets from pan to a platter, and keep in a warm oven (200 degrees).

3. Combine chicken broth, lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon cornstarch in a small bowl; blend till smooth. Add cornstarch mixture and remaining 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil to pan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly until desired thickness is achieved. Spoon over chicken.

Serves 4- Each serving is 1 cutlet and 2 tablespoons sauce.
