“This chicken dinner is easy to make and ready in just 30 minutes. With only four ingredients the Simple Chive Sauce pairs perfectly with chicken breasts.”


    • 4 (4 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 3 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • ½ cup finely chopped shallots
    • ½ cup dry white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or chicken stock
    • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives


  • 1 Sprinkle chicken breasts with the salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish; dip chicken in flour, turning to coat all sides.
  • 2 Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to skillet; swirl to lightly coat skillet. Add chicken breasts, smooth sides down; cook about 5 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown.
  • 3 Turn chicken over; cook for 4 to 5 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F). Transfer chicken to a warm serving platter; set aside.
  • 4 Add shallots to hot skillet; cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Carefully add wine; cook about 1 minute more or until the liquid is reduced by half, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from bottom of skillet.
  • 5 Add chicken broth to skillet; cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in chives. Return chicken to skillet; heat through. Serve immediately.
