This recipe was originally lightened up from my friend Julia’s recipe back in 2011. She has twice as many family members in her household so I halved her recipe and cut back on the butter and olive oil. I then substituted half of the wine for fat free chicken broth and the results were fantastic.

If you prefer to use chicken breasts, slice them into strips before you cook them. To make this gluten free, you can use rice flour, or leave it out for Paleo or Whole30. Those of you who don’t cook with wine, use chicken broth instead.
