  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half)
  • Cook time:27 Minutes
  • Prep time:6 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped green onions, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

Combine 1/4 cup broth and flour in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Add remaining broth, garlic, and thyme; set aside.

Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken, and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn chicken; add 2 tablespoons green onions. Pour broth mixture over chicken; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is done, basting often.

Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Bring sauce to a boil over medium-high heat. Scrape bottom and sides of pan, using a rubber spatula. Cook 2 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 3/4 cup. Pour sauce evenly over chicken, and top with remaining green onions.
