   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           flour -- (for dredging)
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
    4                    chicken breasts -- skinless, boneless
    2      tablespoons   olive oil
    4      sprigs        thyme -- (1 tsp dried)
    2      tablespoons   shallots -- finely chopped
    2      teaspoons     garlic -- finely chopped
    2      teaspoons     lemon rind -- grated
    3      tablespoons   lemon juice
      1/2  cup           chicken broth -- fresh or canned
    2      tablespoons   butter or margarine
 
 Season flour with salt and pepper, and dredge the chichen all over.  Shake off
excess flour.
 
 Heat the oil in a heavy skillet large enough to hold the chicken pieces in one
layer.	Add chicken and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 5 minutes or until
lightly browned.
 
 Turn the chicken and cook for 5 more minutes, or until cooked through. Carefully
remove the oil from the skillet, leaving the chicken.  Discard the oil.
 
 Add the thyme, shallots and garlic, and cook for about a minute.  Do not burn the
garlic.  Add the lemon rind, the lemon juice and the broth.
 
 Scrape the skillet to dissolve the brown particles that cling to the bottom.  Add
the butter, and cook for 3 minutes longer.
