Creamy Herb Chicken


4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2/3 cup chicken broth
1 (4.4 oz.) package spreadable herb cheese (we use Boursin)
1 shallot, minced
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 lemon, zested and juiced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Brush chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
Heat a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken breasts until opaque and no longer pink. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
To the same skillet, heat remaining olive oil and sauté shallot and garlic, with basil, oregano and tarragon, for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
Stir in herb cheese, broth, lemon juice and zest, and whisk together until smooth, then sprinkle in flour and whisk until incorporated.
Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
Return chicken to skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until warmed through. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve hot!
