Ingredients:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp whole grain pastry flour
1 tbsp olive oil
3 shallots, thinly sliced
1/2 c dry red wine or chicken broth
2 firm, ripe peaches, sliced
1/2 c loosely packed fresh basil, sliced

Use your hands to flatten chicken breasts to even thickness. Season chicken with pepper and salt. Coat with flour, patting off excess.

Add remaining oil and shallots to skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes or until shallots soften. Add wine and stir to scrape up any brown bits.
