Chicken Elegante

Author Notes: This is a recipe that I have made for years and it has always been a family favorite. The chicken is moist and flavorful and the sauce is to die for. Chicken Elegante is simple, delicious, and might even become a favorite in your family, too.

I got this recipe from a book my mother bought over 30 years ago called "The Heart of Cooking Cookbook" and was submitted there by Bobbie Passantino. All credit where credit is due.

Serves: 4

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 (10-3/4 oz) can of beef broth, more if needed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a heavy skillet. Dredge chicken in flour, pepper, and tarragon. Brown on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  2. Add 1/2 can of beef broth to the chicken. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the chicken to and oven-proof pan. Stir 1/2 cup sour cream into the juices remaining in the skillet. Stir thoroughly, but do not boil. Pour over the chicken. Sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Bake at 350° until the cheese is melted and the sauce begins to simmer. Serve over rice (optional).
