  • Large Skillet


  • 1 pound Chicken Breasts, Skinless
  • 1/2 cup White Wine dry
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth, Reduced Sodium
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice fresh
  • 2 cloves Garlic fresh, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Thyme Leaves fresh
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper


  • Before you get started, you will want to remove the thyme leaves from the stems, juice your lemon, and chop your garlic to have it ready to go!
  • Season the chicken breasts with black pepper and then dredge them in flour.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until a nice golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add the white wine to the skillet and as it sizzles, scrape the contents from the bottom of your pan. This will add great flavor to your sauce!
  • Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, butter, and thyme. Cook for 5 minutes to allow the sauce to reduce and the flavors to infuse.
  • Add the chicken back to the skillet and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  • Serve, and enjoy!


  • I purchased 4 thin chicken breasts, but you could also purchase 2 whole breasts and slice them in half to make thinner cutlets.
  • Be sure to keep your heat at medium low when cooking the chicken. If the heat is too high, the oil will splatter.
  • Always cook your chicken thoroughly to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Keep the sodium content of this dish down by using a low sodium chicken broth.
  • Any dry white wine can be used. I prefer Pino Grigio.
