Servings 4


Step 1

1. Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. In a 10" skillet, heat oil over med-hi heat. Add chicken and garlic cloves. Cook chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side or just until brown, turning once. Slowly add the 1/2 c wine/broth, the 1/2 c broth, the lemon juice, basil and oregano. Cover and simmer for 6-8 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.
2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken and garlic to a warm serving platter; keep warm.
3. In a small bowl, stir together flour and 2 T wine or broth. Stir into pan juices. Bring to boiling. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Spoon over chicken. If desired, serve with mashed potatoes or rice.
* If you prefer, peel the garlic before cooking (use flat side of knife to mash slightly, then peel off skins) Or, as you eat the cooked cloves, simply slip the skins off with the tip of your knife.
