Recipe Ingredients for Provencal Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
14 1/2 oz. diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons chopped black olives

Recipe Directions for Provencal Chicken

  1. Trim visible fat from chicken breasts. Remove the tenders (the long thin flaps); reserve for another use. Place trimmed chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound with a rolling pin, meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow glass dish. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour, shaking off excess. (Discard any leftover flour.)

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until well browned and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm.

  3. Add onion, garlic and anchovy paste, if using, to the skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring, for 1 minute. Add broth, wine and tomatoes; bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in basil and olives. Return the chicken and juices to the pan; reduce heat to low and heat through. Spoon sauce over the chicken.
