DIRECTIONS

  • Blanch broccoli spears in boiling water (or the microwave) for a few minutes; drain.
  • Sprinkle each side of chicken breasts with lemon juice and pepper. Coat each chicken breast with flour.
  • In large skillet, melt butter. Add chicken; saute 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is tender. Set aside.
  • Using large saucepan to prevent boiling over, combine chicken broth and wine; bring to a rolling boil. Boil over medium heat about 6 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 2/3 cup.
  • Add cream, salt and pepper; continue to boil until liquid is reduced to 1 3/4 cups; about 8-10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In 12x8 inch (2 quart) baking dish, arrange broccoli spears. Place chicken breasts over broccoli, overlapping if necessary. Pour sauce over chicken and broccoli; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F. for 15-20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
