Number of Servings: 6


    1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts (pounded to 1/4" thickness)
    .25 C Brown rice flour
    1 T extra virgin olive oil
    1 T unsalted butter
    1.5 C chicken stock reduced sodium
    .25 C dry white wine
    juice and zest of one lemon
    2 - 3 t fresh thyme
    .25 C fresh parsley
    salt and pepper (preferably white pepper) to taste


Pound chicken breasts to 1/4" thickness.
Season with salt and pepper.
Coat chicken in the brown rice flour (shake off excess).
Brown chicken in oil and butter over med-hi heat (5-6 minutes per side)
Remove chicken from pan and set aside on cooling rack.

Wipe out pan. (This is a very "clean" sauce, therefore the browned bits in the pan are not used in this recipe).

Add all remaining ingredients to pan (except the parsley). Season to taste with salt and white pepper.

Simmer approx. 15 minutes until sauce is reduced by half.

Add chicken back to the pan. Cover and simmer for 10 -15 minutes until chicken is done and tender.

Stir in fresh parsley.

To serve: Spoon sauce over chicken and serve with a fresh lemon wedge.

(Great served with rice or pasta as a side dish)

Makes 6 servings.
