“This looked so good when I saw it demonstrated on QVC many years ago, that I bought the pan they were demonstrating it in and copied out the recipe. :) It is one of the "In the Kitchen with Bob" recipes from years back. I no longer have the pan, but the recipe lives on and is really quite tasty.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet.
  2. Season chicken breasts to taste with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Saute chicken until lightly browned on both sides, but not cooked all the way through yet.
  4. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon to a covered dish and keep warm.
  5. Melt the butter in the same skillet and add scallions; saute scallions about 5 minutes.
  6. Add the brown gravy and the lemon juice and bring to a boil.
  7. Add the wine and simmer another 5 minutes.
  8. Return the chicken breasts to the pan and simmer, covered, 5 minutes more, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  9. Test for seasonings- add more salt and pepper if needed.
  10. Set breasts onto two plates and ladle the sauce over them.
  11. If you wish for a thicker sauce, simply simmer the sauce a bit longer by itself.
