TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 eggs

  • 2. In a large skillet, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon butter and oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine remaining, salt and pepper; stir in broth until smooth. Add apple juice to the skillet, stirring to loosen any browned bits. Stir broth mixture and add to the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
