I Must Love Me Too

If you have neglected yourself,
make a sincere apology to thee.
Gather the "love-me-not-petals" of your life
and start counting "I-must-love-me-too".
In no time at all you have
a beautiful flower blossom within you. ~ Dodinsky Writings

Makes: 4 Servings
Serving Size: 1/2 chicken breast with about 2 tbsp sauce

- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (I use gluten free)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/4 - 1-1/2 pounds)
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup dry white wine (can substitute chicken stock for this but will taste different, of course)
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 tablespoon chopped roasted red bell pepper
or chopped, drained pimiento
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Combine the flour, thyme, paprika, pepper, and salt in a large
bowl or plastic bag. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture.

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Brown the chicken
over medium heat, about 4 minutes per side. Remove and reserve.

Saute the onion and garlic in the same skillet until
tender, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and bay leaf;
bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Return the chicken to the skillet; add the roasted pepper.
Cover and simmer over low heat until the chicken is cooked
through, about 20 minutes. Discard the bay leaf. Serve the
hot chicken in the sauce; sprinkle with parsley.
