  • Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, carrots, and green onions to the skillet. Saute until crisp-tender, stirring frequently, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Whisk chicken broth and flour together and pour over the vegetables in the skillet. Bring to a boil; simmer until thick, about 5 minutes. Add sour cream and mix well. Return chicken breasts to the skillet. Heat until warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute fat-free chicken broth and fat-free sour cream.

I was not a fan of the pan gravy. The taste of the chicken and vegetables was vibrant and tasty though. I ll probably play around and tweak the gravy next time Read More
