  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast, about 1/4 cup sauce, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro)

Ingredients

  • 6 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup vertically sliced onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 6 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened white grape juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups seedless green grapes, halved

Preparation

Sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Add onion and garlic; sauté 2 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in wine, 3 tablespoons cilantro, and next 4 ingredients (through red pepper); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until chicken is done.

Transfer chicken to a serving platter, and keep warm. Increase heat to medium-high; cook until sauce is reduced to 1 cup (about 5 minutes). Stir in grapes. Spoon sauce over chicken; sprinkle with remaining 3 tablespoons cilantro.
