This is a very good recipe that keeps the chicken moist and tasty!

- 1 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup white wine
- 2 teaspoons parsley, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons flour
- Mix the flour with salt and pepper and dust the chicken breasts with it.
- Heat half the butter in a heavy pan.
- Brown the chicken breasts very slowly on both sides.

This was great! I used very large chicken breasts and was in two minds whether to slice them in half or not to make sure they cooked through properly. I'm glad I didn't - the method left them cooked perfectly and super-succulent. Rather than chop the parsley I just served with a few sprigs on top.
