- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
- 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
- 3 or 4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

How To Make:
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 250°F.
STEP 2: In a medium sauce pan, heat chicken broth and white wine over medium-high heat. Boil until reduced by one third, about 5-8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, add lemon juice and cream. Heat to a slow simmer and add butter one tablespoon at a time. Continue to simmer on low, whisking occasionally.
STEP 3: While sauce simmers, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly dredge chicken in the flour, shaking extra any excess before placing chicken in the pan. Cook chicken over medium-high heat about 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Place chicken on an oven-safe plate, cover with foil and place in the oven to keep warm.
STEP 4: In the same pan you cooked the chicken, add the last tablespoon of oil and lower heat to medium. Add the tomatoes in a single layer, adding salt and pepper as desired. Let cook until tomatoes start to disintegrate and caramelize, about 5 minutes. Stir tomatoes and add garlic. Continue to cook on low heat, stirring occasionally.
STEP 5: Remove chicken from oven and slice on diagonal, about 1" thick slices. Add chicken to the skillet and lightly toss with tomatoes. Add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese to your cream sauce now and stir until combined. Add 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour the sauce over the chicken and lightly stir all ingredients together. Sprinkle with fresh basil, top with parmesan cheese and toasted pine nuts. Enjoy!
