Chicken with Green Sauce

We had enough of the Salsa Verde left to make this dish and again it was lip smacking.
4 chicken breast filets\
1 cup flour
4 Tablespoons butter
2 and 2/3 cups salsa Verde
1 cup chicken broth
3 cloves of garlic minced fine
1 fresh jalapenos seeded and minced
3 Tablespoons cilantro minced fine
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup sour cream
3-5 green onions

We pounded the chicken to flatten it out some you do not have to do this.
Salt and pepper the chicken
dredge on both sides with the flour shaking the excess off
Melt butter in a large heavy bottomed pot
Add chicken and cook over med high heat turning once until both sides are well browned but not quite cooked about 6 to7 minutes per side. Remove and keep warm.
Pour chicken broth into the pot and scrape up the bits from the bottom of the pan
Add green salsa garlic,jalapeno,cilantro to the pot bring to a boil
Just as the sauce begins to boil, reduce the heat to a slow simmer, add the chicken back to the sauce and spoon over each piece of chicken.
Cook until chicken is cooked through and tender about 15 minutes
Add more salt and pepper if needed
Plate chicken and spoon over sauce top each with a teaspoon of sour cream and sprinkle some chopped green onions.
