Wrap 2 slices of prosciutto around each cutlet, so the sage will stay in place

  1. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cutlets, starting with the side where the sage is. Cook until no longer pink in the center, about 2 minutes per side. Add broth and cook for 5 min on low heat.

If your skillet is not big enough, cook half of the cutlets (with half of the butter), then transfer them to a platter and cover them to keep them warm. Repeat with remaining half butter and remaining 2 cutlets.
