Pan Grilled Chicken Breast With a Chocolate Cabernet Sauce
  • 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
  1. Place chicken in a bowl with the balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and mustard. Toss well to coat.
  2. Place in a hot grill pan and cook 3 minutes each side, turning 4 times.
  3. While chicken is cooking, bring wine to a boil in a heavy pot and reduce by half.
  4. When wine is reduced, add chocolate and stir until melted.
  5. Add salt, pepper, garlic, and onion.
  6. Tips:
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Serves 4
