Ingredients
  • 3 cups trimmed green beans
  • 6 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • ⅓ cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 lemon wedges
Instructions
  1. Steam green beans, covered, 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  2. Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to ¼-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet.
  3. Season chicken evenly with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 2 breast halves to pan; sauté 2 minutes on each side or until done. Repeat procedure twice with remaining chicken.
  4. Add broth and wine to pan; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook until reduced to ½ cup (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in butter.
  5. Serve green beans with chicken and sauce. Garnish with lemon wedges.
