Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the chicken on medium-high heat until cooked thoroughly and slightly brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Set aside.
