Number of Servings: 1


    1/2 chicken breast pounded flat
    1 tsp. paprika
    1 tbsp. flour (for gluten-free use rice flour)
    2 tsp. olive oil
    1 large sliced shallot
    1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
    1 sundried tomato, minced
    1-2 oz. chicken broth
    1 tbsp. half and half
    chopped parsley to garnish


Sprinkle paprika over chicken breast. Dust or toss chicken in flour within a brown or ziploc bag. (Paprika burns easily - for best results do not mix paprika into the flour, let the flour be a thin dusting over it.)

Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in saute pan and brown both sides of the chicken breast. Remove chicken breast.

Add 1 tsp. olive oil to pan together with the sundried tomato, shallot and mushrooms. Saute until tender.

Add chicken breast to shallot and mushrooms. (Add more mushrooms if you like - they are nearly calorie/fat-free.)

Deglaze pan with 1-2 tbsp. chicken broth. Turn heat to low and stir/whisk in 1 tbsp. half and half.

Continue stirring until desired consistency (do not turn heat up, the half and half may separate).

Transfer to plate and top with 1 -2 tsp. parsley (parsley is high in iron).

Note: Using a non-stick pan, you will only need the small amount of olive oil. Drizzle very thinly around pan, or use a spray. If you find you need more, add 1 tbsp. water or broth to the veggies (not the chicken) and this will help soften them further.
