This has become a go-to weeknight meal for me. It’s simple to throw together and quick. Doesn’t hurt that I have a ton of sage in my garden and I’m able to use a bunch in this recipe. I’ve tried some of the suggestionsof other reviewers - throwing wine and garlic in, which were great suggestions! I think this recipe is a nice, healthy jumping off point!

I used sage from my garden, yum! This is a winning dish. I added some minced garlic after removing the chicken and it added another depth of flavor. Cannot wait to use this for a dinner party!

I am cooking this dish tonight with sage from my garden. It looks and sounds great. I can’t wait to try it. I’ll let you know. Have you ever used lemon sage? It doesn’t have that really strong sage character but it is nice and really has kind of a lemon hint.

I loved this dish! I made it according to directions with one exception: as others noted, there really is NO marinade left over. So I deglazed the pan with a little white wine and lemon juice and added a bit of chicken stock at the end to give it a bit more flavor.

I had high hopes for this recipe, but was somewhat disappointed with the finished dish. There just wasn't enough marinade to reduce after the chicken was removed from the pan, and there was too much olive oil. I think this dish could be improved greatly with a few tweaks. I absolutely loved the sage, however. I actually fried it beside the chicken in the pan until it was crisp, and served it as a tasty garnish with the chicken. My daughter and I loved the herb & will prepare it this way again!

I have made this several times during summer dinner parties at the Lake. It has never failed and it is simply delicious. I have served it with a light spring risotto.

Hi Wynn, If you have a chance, try to the lemon risotto recipe (under my profile) to serve with the sage chicken. The risotto is "mantecared" with lemon, butter, cheese and a blend of sage, mint, and rosemary that blows everyone's mind with the first bite. It ties in beautifully with the chicken dish. Mangia!

Hi Amy, Here is the recipe for the Lemon Risotto. It is amazing and even better the next day. JB

This recipe proves that simplicity isn't boring. This is a dish anyone can make easily and it is hard to screw it up. The sage is wonderful and not at all overpowering, the lemon adds just the right amount of bite. You can dress it up with a sophisticated side dish or just serve it with salad.

I made this for a woman I work as a personal chef for, and she loved it. Beautiful flavors (and smells!). Thanks for sharing!

Made this tonight! YUM! The flavors are excellent. My chicken breasts were a little uneven in size. Next time I'll pound them to equal sizes so everything can be done around the same time. Rookie mistake on my part. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Thanks for sharing that tip. I’m kinda of a rookie myself to these new recipes. It sounds lovely. 😊

This was delicious! It's also inexpensive, easy, and it looks great on the plate. This is going to be one of my go-to chicken recipes.

This was fantastic. Highly recommended. I did it with a half poulet; browned in a cast iron skillet, both sides at high heat for 3 minutes each. I then finished in a 350 oven for 20 mins. http://instagram.com/p/RJnBxjE28-/

I have an abundance of sage and don't use it all the much for summer cooking. This dish was SO easy and so tasty! I threw a splash of white wine into the glaze (since I had it open anyway :). Wonderful weeknight meal that I will definitely make again.

This was great! Clean and simple. Sage is an underused and delicious resource - thanks for a new way to use it!

Precisely the recipe I could handle tonight. Fresh sage thanks to my CSA, chicken that must be cooked tonight, and a new bag of lemons. Add a glass of a spectacular chardonnay (not my usual, but tonight, oh, it fits!), and I'm a happy lady. Thanks for sharing!
