Chicken Pomodoro
Comments: This is a quick and easy chicken dish with a light fresh tomato sauce. I like to use a little paprika for color.

1 1/4 pounds chicken breast, boneless and skinless
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup half and half, fat free
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup basil, fresh, chopped

Preparation: Cut chicken breasts in half and pound to ensure even thickness about 1/4 inch thick. Season with salt and pepper, and a little paprika if desired. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side until browned and cooked through. Remove cutlets to a plate.
