Chicken with Lemon, Mushroom and Herb Sauce

Serves 4

1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tablespoons dried basil
1/2 tablespoons dried parsley
1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 LB boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 oz lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Dredge chicken in the mixture to coat, patting off any excess flour.
Melt butter with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook chicken until no longer translucent. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, wine, and lemon juice; pour over chicken.
Cover skillet, and simmer 20 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Garnish with parsley.
