MAKES: 6 servings
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3 tablespoons butter, divided
2 green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon sherry or chicken broth
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 tablespoons diced pimientos
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the Parmesan cheese, basil and oregano. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in 2 tablespoons butter for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Remove and keep warm.
In the same skillet, saute onions in remaining butter for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Gradually add flour and salt; stir in milk and sherry or broth until blended.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in spinach and pimientos; heat through.
Remove from the heat. Stir in sour cream until blended. Spoon over chicken; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Yield: 6 servings.
