Pour the chicken broth, wine and butter, scraping all the brown bits from the chicken. Add lemon slices and tomatoes. Let it cook for a 2 -3 minutes and add shredded cheese. Simmer on low until the mixture thickens.
  4. Return the chicken back to the skillet and cook for a minute or so. Add parsley.
  5. Serve over pasta. You can add more shredded cheese or grated Parmesan cheese on top.
