Mix together the flour, salt, and pepper.
REmove from heat and add 2 tablespoons butter. Butter? Amazing in a weight watchers recipe right? My advice? If you like a more liquid sauce, don't add it. The butter makes a thicker, richer sauce but you could go either way. The points plus value has the butter calculated in so I figured why not!?

Weight Watchers Online Recipe
|3 Tbsp all-purpose flour|
|3/4 tsp table salt, divided|
|1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, divided|
|1 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, four 4 oz pieces|
|2 tsp olive oil|
|1 small vidalia onion(s), cut in half lengthwise, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)|
|1 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth|
|2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar|
|1 Tbsp thyme, fresh, chopped, or less to taste|
|2 tsp butter|
- On a plate, combine flour, 1⁄2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Dredge chicken in flour mixture and turn to coat; shake off any excess.
- Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, flipping once, until golden and cooked through, about 7 minutes; remove to a serving plate and cover to keep warm.
- Add onion to skillet; sauté over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add broth, vinegar, thyme and remaining 1⁄4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring often, until onions are tender, about 5 minutes.
- Remove skillet from heat and stir in butter until melted; spoon sauce over chicken. Yields 1 chicken breast and about 1/4 cup onion sauce per serving.
