Start by butterflying the chicken breasts, make a horizontal cut through each breast, but not all the way through, then open it up like a book. Place between two pieces of parchment or wax paper and pound to about 1/4 of an inch thick.Mix the flour, salt, pepper and granulated garlic in a shallow bowl, coat the chicken lightly with flour. Shake off the excess.Melt 2 Tbs of butter in a large skillet over high heat, add in the chicken, one or two breasts at a time so they are not overcrowded and cook for 3-4 minutes, turn the chicken and cook 3-4 more minutes. Transfer to a plate and keep warm in a 200° oven. Repeat with the remaining breasts, adding 1 more Tbs of butter before adding each one and you may have to turn the heat down to medium or medium high.Provel Sauce:
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, add in the shallot and saute for 2 – 3 minutes, sprinkle in the flour and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes.Whisk in the milk, cook for 2 minutes. Add in the cheese and stir until the cheese is melted.Add in salt, pepper and wine. Stir often until thickened.To serve, plate the chicken and spoon the incredible sauce over the top and sprinkle with parsley.DSC04401Note to cooks: The Provel sauce can be made earlier in the day, just before serving, heat gently and add a little white wine to thin out a bit.
