Wash and dry chicken. Pound flat with a mallet. Melt butter and oil in a large skillet. Coat chicken with flour and regulate heat to medium-high, place chicken breasts in skillet. Cook approximately 3-5 minutes per side. When done, salt and pepper them, and put in an oven-proof dish, keeping warm in a 250 degree oven.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve. Note: Goes well with buttered peas and stuffed tomatoes!
