Ingredients

    Half skinless, boneless chicken breast
    1 Tblsp flour
    salt & pepper (to taste)
    1 tsp dried thyme
    2 tsp olive oil
    1/2 C dry white wine
    1 Tblsp table cream

Directions

Slice through fillet horizontally, leaving a thin strip uncut. Open up, butterfly style and pound lightly between wax paper of plastic wrap to flatten and tenderize. Mix flour with thyme, salt and pepper and rub into each side of the meat.
Heat olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat until haze starts to form. Lightly brown the fillet on each side, then flip and continue cooking until cooked through but not dry...about 4 minutes each side. Remove to a warm plate and keep hot while you make the sauce.
Turn up the heat to medium high and pour the white wine into the pan stirring with a wooden spoon to loosen any brown bits. Allow to boil until reduced by about half then add the cream to the still boiling liquid and stir until the sauce thickens. Pour over the chicken and serve with baby potatoes and a green vegetable.
