Ingredients

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1/4 cup sweet and hot mustard
2 cups cabernet
3 ounces melted chocolate
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1 t garlic
1 t onion flake


Place chicken in a bowl with the balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and mustard. Toss well to coat.


Place in a hot grill pan and cook 3 minutes each side, turning 4 times.


While chicken is cooking, bring wine to a boil in a heavy pot and reduce by half.


When wine is reduced, add chocolate and stir until melted.


Add salt, pepper, garlic, and onion.


Tips:


This chicken recipe also works well as a party appetizer. Place the chicken breast strips on skewers, grill, and serve with cabernet sauce as a dip.


The cabernet sauce also tastes great with stuffed chicken breasts. Slice the side of the breast to create a pocket and fill with cooked spinach and pine nuts.


Since the sauce is rich, keep the sides simple and light, like green beans with a squeeze of lemon juice or fluffy white rice with a little butter.
