2 whole Skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup Flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Fresh rosemary; chopped
4 cloves Garlic; chopped fine
1/2 cup White port wine
2 tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons Fresh parsley; chopped (optional)
Salt; to taste
Pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Split chicken breasts in half down the center. Trim neatly to remove peripheral membrane and bits of fat.

Dredge chicken in flour seasoned with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a heavy skillet large enough to hold chicken breasts in one layer.

Add chicken, rosemary, and garlic.

Cook approximately 4 minutes or until chicken pieces are nicely brown on one side. Turn and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until golden brown on other side. Do not cover.

Pour off fat from skillet and pour in wine.

Bring to a boil.

Add lemon juice and parsley.

Cover closely and cook 3 minutes longer.

Serve immediately.

If fresh rosemary is unavailable, substitute 1 tablespoon of dry rosemary for 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary.

Very easy to make and tasted great!

browned the chicken and then put in crockpot. I doubled the lemon and wine and let it cook for several hours. Pulled the chix out and added butter and corn starch to the sauce and reduced. Added spaghetti. Perfect!

Absolutely amazing. Loved this. Let the wine and lemon boil a little too long but was still delicious. Even my daughter liked it and she doesn't eat anything like this.

I added all ingredients (and used frozen chicken) to the crockpot for about 8 hrs on low- great!
