    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon butter
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Set aside 4-1/2 teaspoons for sauce. Sprinkle the remaining flour mixture over both sides of chicken.

In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 7-9 minutes in each side or until juices run clear. Remove and keep warm.

In the same pan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add thyme and reserved flour mixture; stir until blended. Gradually stir in the broth and lemon juice, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over chicken.
