Recipe Ingredients for Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Creamy Chive Sauce-Shell

1 1/3 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided
3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 large onion, finely chopped
14 ounce reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/3 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tablespoon mustard, spicy
1/2 cup chopped chives, (about 1 bunch)

Recipe Directions for Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Creamy Chive Sauce-Shell

  1. Place chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch. Season both sides of the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place 1/4 cup flour in a shallow glass baking dish and dredge the chicken in it. Discard the excess flour.

  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, cover and keep warm.

  3. Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring constantly and scraping up any browned bits, until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon flour; stir to coat. Add wine, broth and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil, stirring often.

  4. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until heated through and no longer pink in the center, about 6 minutes. Stir in sour cream and mustard until smooth; turn the chicken to coat with the sauce. Stir in chives and serve immediately.
