Chicken With Green Peppercorn Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by 4Jacksons

This recipe was from Cooking Light magazine, which stated it originally came from the cookbook "French Women Don't Get Fat". My wife and I cooked this up for the first time the other night and absolutely loved it! A great pepper flavor, and the chicken was tender and juicy! It is a slight variation of Chicken Breasts With Green Peppercorn Sauce. We used dry sherry as I did not know which white wines were considered "dry".

This was great. It's much spicier than I expected. We added several tomatoes (we removed the seeds and chopped them before cooking) and were glad we did. I think it would have been very plain without them.
