Chicken with Green Peppercorn Sauce

Crush peppercorns in a plastic bag with a small, heavy skillet. Reducing wine and low-sodium chicken broth builds flavor and keeps added sodium at a minimum. Finishing the sauce with butter adds richness. Serve with roasted baby carrots and mashed potatoes. For pretty presentation, slice breast halves crosswise before spooning on sauce.
