CHICKEN-GRAPE(M)         USENET Cookbook         CHICKEN-GRAPE(M)

GREAT GRAPE CHICKEN

     CHICKEN-GRAPE - Chicken in wine with grapes and orange

     This recipe was originally posted by Wayne Thompson.  I
     thought it was great, and I submit it here with some varia-
     tions.  This colors in this dish are a feast for the eyes.
     The recipe comes originally from Elegant Meals with Inexpen-
     sive Meats, by Ortho Books.

INGREDIENTS (Serves 4 to 6)
     3         chicken breasts, halved, boned, skinned (6 halves,
               about 3 lbs in all)
     2 Tbsp    butter, (or margarine)
     1 Tbsp    orange marmalade (I suggest fresh coarsely-grated
               orange peel)
     1/4 tsp   tarragon, crumbled
     1         green onion, thinly sliced (use part of the top)
     1/3 cup   dry white wine
     1 cup     seedless grapes (try red grapes, such as "Flame")
     1/4 cup   whipping cream
               salt
               nutmeg

PROCEDURE
          (1)  Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and nutmeg.
               Brown lightly in heated butter in a large frying
               pan.

          (2)  Add marmalade, tarragon, green onion and wine.
               Cover, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.

          (3)  Add grapes, cover again and continue cooking about
               10 minutes longer, until chicken is cooked through
               (test with a small sharp knife in thickest part).

          (4)  Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken and grapes
               to a warm serving dish; keep warm. Add cream to
               liquid in pan. Bring to boiling, stirring, and
               cook until reduced and slightly thickened. Salt to
               taste. Pour sauce over chicken.

NOTES
     (WT) I use a whole cut up chicken.
     (CSR) I like to cook the chicken in a black cast-iron pan
     and serve after step 3. I skip the cream sauce, because it
     smothers the beautiful black-green-red-orange-tan colors.

RATING
     Difficulty: easy.  Time: 30 minutes.  Precision: approximate
     measurement OK.
