Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
  • 1/4 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper sauce, if desired
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Steps

  • 1
    Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place chicken breast half with smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick. Repeat with remaining chicken. Cut chicken into smaller pieces if desired.
  • 2
    In shallow dish, mix flour, cumin and salt. Coat chicken with flour mixture. Reserve 1 teaspoon flour mixture.
  • 3
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from skillet; cover to keep warm.
  • 4
    In small bowl, stir reserved 1 teaspoon flour mixture into broth. Gradually stir broth mixture and red pepper sauce into skillet. Heat to boiling; stir in lime juice and cilantro. Serve sauce over chicken.

  • Serve with cornbread or corn muffins, steamed green beans or broccoli, and fresh fruit for a scrumptious dinner.
  • Instead of chicken, use 1 pound pork tenderloin. Cut into 4 pieces, and flatten as directed for the chicken.
