Yuuuuuuuum. This recipe is SO FLAVORFUL.
I was slopping up the sauce with my roll at the end.
4 (6oz) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced (I used pressed garlic)
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp dried herbes de Provence (you can make your own) *Mine didn't have oregano or lavender*
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp butter
Thyme sprigs (optional)
1. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, pound to 1/2 inch thickness using a meat mallet or small, heavy skillet. (I didn't pound my chicken, and just tried to cook it as thick as it was and it took a lot longer to cook and was kind of chewy) Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt and pepper.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.
3. Add garlic to pan; cook 1 min, stirring constantly. Add broth and herbs de Provence; bring to boil, scrapping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until broth mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup (about 3 minutes). Remove from heat; add lemon juice and butter, stirring until butter melts. (I added about 1Tbsp of flour to thicken the sauce a little) Serve sauce over chicken. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired. Yield: 4 servings
