  1. Place chicken breasts between plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet to a 1/2" thickness. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken evenly with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  3. Add garlic to pan and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add broth and rosemary; bring to a boil while scraping up any browned bits. Cook approximately 3 minutes, until mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup. Remove pan from heat and add wine or lemon juice and butter, stirring until butter melts. Serve sauce over chicken.

This was lovely! Quick and simple, I can see this becoming part of my go-to file as the ingredients are things I always have on hand. I used the lemon juice option and I cut the chicken into pieces to serve over rice and it was very good. I did add a little corn starch slurry to thicken the sauce. Thanks for this one, Bizzy!

Good and quick weeknight dinner. I threw a little flour on my chicken breasts then S&P. I used fresh rosemary and used wondra to thicken the sauce a bit. Tasty simplicity!
