Recipe: Champagne Chicken

This is a wonderful chicken dish…. that’s not hard to make and certainly could be used for a romantic dinner for two…. it should at least make your list of possibilities for Valentine’s Day…

I’ve made it for a number of special occasion meals over the years to much success….

You can make everything up to the adding of the heavy cream and grapes. Cook the chicken until almost done... turn the heat on very low and simmer very slowly.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.


Champagne Chicken Recipe:

All you need:

¼ cup flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon ginger
2 boneless chicken breasts (4 halves)
¼ cup butter
1 onion sliced
Bouquet garni made of 1 carrot, cut-up, 1 bay leaf
4 cups of champagne
1 cup seedless white grapes
1 cup heavy cream

All you need to do:

Put the flour, salt, pepper and ginger in a bag.
Shake each piece of chicken in the bag to coat.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Brown the chicken slowly in the butter.
Then add the onion, cook the onion for 1-2 minutes until they soften a little.
Add the champagne and the bouquet garni.
Cover and simmer until the chicken is cooked.
Remove the chicken and transfer to a warm plate.
Remove the bouquet garni and the onion.
Add the grapes and the heavy cream.
Heat… but do not boil the sauce…
Place the chicken on a platter and pour the sauce over it.
You can also serve it on individual plates with a bed of wild rice, rice pilaf or other rice…. the chicken on top and the sauce poured over that.
