Boneless, skinless chicken breasts 2 (6-ounce)
Lemon pepper ½ teaspoon
Olive oil 2 teaspoons
Garlic, chopped 2 cloves
Reduced-sodium chicken broth 6 ounces
Flour 1 tablespoon
Crème fraiche (or substitute reduced fat sour cream) 3 tablespoons

Directions
  1. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin until ½ inch thick. Season both sides with lemon pepper.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
