  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

STEP 2

Heat butter in skillet and cook chicken until browned on all sides, add wine and bouillon. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 30 minutes. Remove tooth picks and transfer breasts to warm platter.
