This lively chicken recipe features savory shallots and a creamy chicken breast with fresh lemon for garnish. It pairs nicely with the La Marca Prosecco, which has aromas of fresh citrus, honey, and white flowers. Talk about a showstopping pair!


Select ingredients:


  1. Cut each chicken breast into 3 pieces. Place a few pieces at a time in a plastic bag and pound with a meat mallet to flatten slightly.
  2. Stir together flour, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add chicken to bowl and toss to coat well with mixture.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter with olive oil in a very large skillet. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  4. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Melt remaining butter in same skillet.
  5. Add shallots; cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add stock, olives, wine, tomatoes, lemon juice and chicken to skillet.
  6. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until sauce is somewhat thickened, turning chicken once. Sprinkle with rosemary. Makes 4 servings.
