Loved it, classic french style, simply prepared with a flavor packed jus. One change I made was to brown the chicken breast in a non-stick pan (and then finish cooking by popping it into the oven) before making the sauce to build extra flavor.

Loved it, classic french style, simply prepared with a flavor packed jus.

One change I made was to brown the chicken breast in a non-stick pan (and then finish cooking by popping it into the oven) before making the sauce to build extra flavor.

That way I could use the same pan to cook the shallots (I used onion and fresh garlic) and add the wine to deglaze and scrape up all those flavorful brown bits. I then served with blanched carrots and some crusty bread to sop up the sauce.
