  • 1 pound chicken cutlets

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 2 corn, kernels cut from the cob

  • 1 large tomato, chopped

  • 1 large clove garlic, grated

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil

  • Snipped fresh chives for garnish


  1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, corn kernels, tomato and garlic to the pan. Cook, stirring, until the tomatoes start breaking down, about 2 minutes. Increase heat to high and add wine. Cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the liquid is mostly evaporated, about 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and stir in sour cream, any accumulated chicken juices and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper; simmer, stirring, for 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan along with the basil; turn to coat. Serve the chicken topped with the sauce. Garnish with chives, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
