This is really good! I used alfalfa sprouts instead of the sprouted beans...mainly because I couldn't find the sprouted beans!

Quick-cooking chicken cutlets are paired with an elegant but easy light sauce.
This dish can be made without the sprouted beans.
Makes 4 servings

ACTIVE TIME: 35 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes

1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon flour, divided
1 pound thin-sliced chicken breast cutlets
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
8 ounces sugar snap peas, cut in half (2 cups)
1 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, rinsed
1/4 cup sprouted beans, optional (see Ingredient note) (Peg’s Note: I used alfalfa sprouts because I couldn’t find sprouted beans)
3 tablespoons minced fresh herbs, such as chives, tarragon or dill
2 teaspoons champagne vinegar or white-wine vinegar

1. Whisk broth, mustard, salt, pepper and
2 teaspoons flour in a small bowl until smooth.
2. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with the remaining 1 tablespoon flour.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken in
two batches, adjusting heat as necessary to prevent burning, until golden, about
2 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate; tent with foil to keep
3. Increase heat to high; stir the broth mixture and add to the skillet along
with snap peas, artichoke hearts and sprouted beans. Bring to a simmer, stirring
constantly. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook until the snap peas
are tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
4. Return the chicken to the pan, nestling it into the vegetables, and simmer
until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in herbs and

TIP: Ingredient Note: Sprouted beans, not to be confused with bean sprouts, are
beans that have just barely sprouted—they look like a bean with a tiny fiber
attached (rather than the more fleshy-looking sprouts commonly used in Asian
cooking). Eat raw in salads or add to cooked dishes; they're an excellent source
of fiber and protein. Look for them in the produce section near other sprouts.
