Creamy Chive Chicken

Servings 6 people


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast meat
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt divided
  • 1/2 cup flour divided
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil divided
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine or use white grape juice with a splash of cider vinegar
  • 21.75 ounces low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup low fat sour cream at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh chives


  • Trim chicken and place between sheets of plastic wrap; pound with a meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even thickness, about 1/2-inch.
  • Season both sides of chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Place 1/3 cup of the flour on a plate and dredge chicken; discard excess flour.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken and cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side; transfer to a plate, cover with foil wrap and keep warm.
  • Heat remaining oil in the skillet; add onion and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until translucent, stirring constantly and scraping up all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Sprinkle with remaining flour and stir to coat onion. Add wine (or juice/vinegar), broth and remaining salt; bring to a boil, stirring often.
  • Return chicken to the pan along with any accumulated juices. Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is heated through and no longer pink in the center, about 6 minutes. Stir in sour cream and mustard until smooth; turn chicken to coat with the sauce.
  • Stir in chives and serve immediately.
