Four chicken breasts halved butterfly style,
APFlour, salt, pepper,
one medium onion sliced,
two peppers (red, green, yellow, or mix) sliced,

Directions:
Directions:
Pound chicken pieces then season w/ salt & pepper (or season with your favorite dry rub).
While heating a large skillet on med-hi with 2-3 T. olive oil & 2 T. butter, lightly coat chicken w/ APFlour. Cook chicken 2-3 minutes per side; you want to see browning but will not completely cook chicken this step. Place chicken pieces on separate plate and cover with foil.

In same skillet, add EVOO & 2 T. butter on med to med-hi & start cooking onions, season w/ salt & pepper, after 1-2 mins add garlic then peppers. After 1-2 min, add mushrooms & cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add white wine to skillet with veggies still in and allow to boil briefly, then add chicken broth, deglazing skillet w/ wooden spoon. Allow to come to a boil and turn heat back to low. Complete cooking of chicken by placing chicken and juices from plate back into skillet and allowing to simmer for 10-15 minutes. For a thicker sauce, add two tsp. APF while cooking veggies and cook briefly prior to adding liquid.

Personal Notes:
This is named surprise because it is adaptable to the veggies you have on hand. I have marinated the chicken for a different twist also, e.g., oriental style. It pairs well with rice.
