  • 1 1/4 lb. chicken cutlets
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Step by Step:

  1. Season chicken breast evenly with salt and pepper; dredge in flour, shaking off excess. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat; add chicken and cook 4 minutes on each side. Remove to serving platter. Remove skillet from heat and stir in shallots and white wine. Cook over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes or until reduced by half, stirring often. Whisk together mustard, fat-free half-and-half, tarragon and cornstarch. Stir mixture into shallot mixture. Reduce heat to low and heat 2 to 3 minutes, or just until slightly thickened; DO NOT BOIL. Serve sauce immediately over chicken breast.
