flour spread on a plate for dredging
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup of white wine
juice of 2 lemons

1 cup chicken broth

  1. Dredge each chicken breast in flour to coat and shake off excess.
  2. Heat oil in a large saute pan set on medium heat.
  3. Place chicken breasts in pan and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 2-3 minutes for each side.
  4. Drain the oil and add butter, wine, lemon, salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add the broth and cook until the liquid is reduced by half, 5 to 6 minutes(sprinkle a little flour in when it starts boiling to thicken.)
  6. Transfer Chicken to serving dishes, top with sauce and a slice of lemon for garnish.
