Ingredients

4 boneless chicken breast halves or about 1 pound thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts

Salt and pepper

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 red bell pepper, very thinly sliced, optional

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3 cloves garlic, finely minced

4 green onions, with about 3 inches of green, thinly sliced

1 cup chicken broth

1/2 cup heavy cream

Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Put the chicken breast halves between sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound to a thickness of about 1/4-inch. If using thinly sliced chicken breast, skip this step. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper; dredge in the flour.

Heat the oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; add the chicken and brown for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Add the bell pepper, lemon juice, garlic, green onions, and chicken broth; bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Add the cream and salt and pepper, to taste.
