Serves 4

Ingredients:

• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat (1-1¼ pounds total)

• ¼ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste

• ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste

• 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, or canola oil, divided

• ¼ cup finely chopped shallots

• ½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

• ½ cup dry white wine

• 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

• 1 tablespoon reduced-fat sour cream

• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon

Directions:

Season chicken on both sides lightly with salt and pepper and brown over medium-high heat (about 3 minutes per side)

Transfer chicken breasts to a plate and tent with foil.

Reduce heat to medium, add 1 teaspoon oil to pan along with the shallots and cook until softened (2-3 minutes).

Add broth and wine, bring to a simmer, and cook until reduced by about half.

Return chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan and simmer over low heat until chicken is cooked through (about 5 minutes).

Transfer chicken to a warmed platter. Stir mustard, sour cream, and tarragon into sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
