This is one of the meals that I have made quite often over the years when I have company, because it seems to please everyone. It looks fancy, and so your company will think you worked for hours on the meal, but it is really a very simple and delicious dish to make with ingredients that you usually have on hand.

Photos are my own. Enjoy!

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat until hot.
5
Add chicken and brown on both sides.
6
Add wine and chicken granules to the pan. Reduce heat, cover skillet and simmer 30 minutes or until chicken is fork tender and juices run clear.
7
In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch and cream until smooth. Add the mixture to the skillet with the juices and simmer until the sauce is thick and smooth.
8
Remove browned chicken to a platter, remove the toothpicks, slice into 3/4 inch slices with a sharp knife almost all the way through; then tent with foil to keep warm.

Drizzle the sauce over the sliced chicken and serve immediately.
