In a large bowl, combine the chicken breasts, salt, pepper, rosemary, herbs de provence and 2tsp of the whole wheat flour. Mix thoroughly so each chicken breasts is seasoned. In a large pot on medium-high heat, add olive oil. When the olive oil is hot, lay chicken breasts into pan and sear on one side.

Add to the reserved stock 1 tblsp of unbleached white flour and mix until all lumps dissolve. Add reserved stock back to pot, rise your heat to medium and continually stir for 8-10 minutes until stock has thickened to a sauce. Turn off heat and let cool for 3 minutes.
