What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Put the chicken breast halves between sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound to a thickness of about 1/4-inch. If using thinly sliced chicken breast, skip this step. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper; dredge in the flour.
  2. Heat the oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; add the chicken and brown for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Add the bell pepper, lemon juice, garlic, green onions, and chicken broth; bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  1. Add the cream and salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Serve with hot cooked angel hair pasta.
