 Ingredients List

  • 3 Chicken breasts, halved,
  • -boned, skinned (6 halves,

  • 2 tb Butter (or margarine)
  • 1 tb Orange marmalade (I suggest

  • 1/3 c White wine, dry

  • -(try red grapes,
  • -such as "Flame")

  • Salt
  • Nutmeg


Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and nutmeg. Brown lightly in heated
butter in a large frying pan. Add marmalade, tarragon, green onion and
wine. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.

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

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

* (CSR) I like to cook the chicken in a black cast-iron pan; I skip the
cream sauce, because it smothers the beautiful black-green-red-orange-tan
