  • 2 large chicken breast halves
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • juice of one lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary about 3-inches long -OR- 1 tsp dried (see NOTES)
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Seasoned Flour:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • 2 tbs reserved Seasoned Flour
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Slice each chicken breast in half to make 2 portions--I do this like I am going to butterfly it but cut all the way through
  • Mix seasoed flour ingredients in a small bowl
  • Pound each slice down to 1/4-inch thickness by placing between plastic wrap and using a meat mallet
  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Dredge chicken in seasoned flour and brown on both sides.
  • Add the stock, garlic, rosemary, sliced lemon, lemon juice, sugar, salt and pepper to the skillet; stir.
  • Cover and cook for 20 minutes over low heat.
  • Add the cream and stir.
  • Mix the reserved seasoned flour and water, making sure there are no lumps. Remove chicken and keep warm. Discard the lemon slices, garlic and rosemary sprigs.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the juice and stir until thickened.


For dried rosemary, crush it between your fingers before adding. If using fresh,hit the sprigs with the back of a knife to "bruise" it.
