Lemony poached chicken

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
¼ teaspoon Ground black pepper
½ cup Chicken broth
¼ cup White wine
2 tablespoons Lemon juice
1 teaspoon Grated lemon peel
1 cup Lowfat milk
1½ tablespoon Cornstarch
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Minced fresh parsley (Optional)

Season the chicken with pepper. Combine the chicken broth, wine, lemon juice and lemon peel in a large, deep skillet. Bring to a boil. Add the chicken and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, until cooked through. Remove the chicken to a serving plate.

Blend the milk, cornstarch and mustard until smooth. Stir into the simmering liquid in the skillet. Increase the heat to medium. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and thickens. Return the chicken to the skillet and coat well with the sauce. Sprinkle with the parsley before serving.

Makes 4 servings.
