Preheat oven to 475°F.
Loosen the skin from the chicken breasts, but keep intact.
Combine dried herbs and pepper in a small bowl and rub ¼ of the mixture onto each breast, under the skin.
Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
With skin side up, place the chicken breasts in a 9 x 13-inch metal baking rimmed pan, stovetop safe.
Evenly dot the chicken with pieces of butter.
Roast until cooked through, about 25 minutes.
Transfer chicken to a plate, keeping juices.
Place pan with the juices over medium heat.
Lightly and slowly, to avoid clumps…add the flour (sprinkling/sifting is best) stir until golden, about 30 seconds.
Whisk in chicken broth. Bring to boil, whisking risky and constantly until mixture begins to thicken, about 2 minutes.
Stir in the parsley. Check season, adding salt and pepper, if needed.
