  1. Mix together the pink and green peppercorns. Spread over the both sides of the chicken breasts. Pound the chicken with a meat mallet until it is half as thick as it was before.
  2. Melt half of the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry chicken breasts for about 5 minutes per side or until nicely browned and no longer pink in the centre. Remove chicken to a serving dish and keep warm.
  3. Stir the remaining butter, double cream, garlic and rosemary into the frying pan, mixing into the juices from the chicken. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Pour sauce over the chicken and serve.
