Welcome back to “Recipes with a Story,” where each dish comes with a side of cherished memories. Today, I’m excited to share the second installment: Chicken Saltimbocca, or as we fondly call it, “the chicken we served at our wedding.”

Our wedding took place at the stunning Park Chateau in New Jersey, known for its opulent and lavish food options. The planning process was a whirlwind, but one of my favorite parts of the journey was the pre-wedding tasting at the venue. We got a glimpse of the entire reception experience, and amidst all the choices, one dish stood out: the Chicken Saltimbocca. Its simplicity was deceptive, as the flavors were nothing short of explosive.

I’ll never forget that moment during the tasting when we both knew this chicken dish had to be on our wedding menu. It was an absolute star. Fast forward to today, and I finally attempted to recreate this special dish at home. The second it hit my taste buds, I was transported back to our wedding day. It’s amazing how food can evoke such vivid memories and emotions.
