Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram

Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until reduced by half. Stir in the broth, mustard and lemon peel.
  • 3. Place reserved flour mixture in a small bowl; stir in milk until smooth. Stir into broth mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Return chicken to skillet; cook for 5 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 4 servings.
