Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 (4.4 oz.) package spreadable herb cheese
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped

Directions

  1. Brush chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tablespoon oil.  Cook chicken breasts until opaque and no longer pink. Transfer to a plate, cover to keep warm and set aside.
  3. To the same skillet, heat remaining olive oil and sauté shallot and garlic, with oregano, basil and tarragon, for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
  4. Stir in herb cheese, broth, lemon juice and zest, and whisk together until smooth.  Whisk in flour until incorporated.
  5. Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
  6. Plate chicken and then spoon sauce over breasts.  Sprinkle with parsley.
