To prepare glaze, place grapes in a blender; process until smooth. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cover and cook 10 minutes. Add garlic; cover and cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in pureed grapes, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and 1 teaspoon rosemary; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until slightly thick. Cool slightly. Place grape mixture in blender; process until smooth. Set aside.
To prepare chicken, brush 1 tablespoon oil over chicken; sprinkle with 2 teaspoons rosemary, pepper, and salt. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; cover and grill 25 minutes or until done, turning and basting frequently with grape glaze. Garnish with rosemary leaves, if desired.
It did take a lot of prep work, but it turned out alright. My family doesn't necessarily like grapes so I took out half of them and the chicken still turned out well. It tasted pretty good and I got quite a few compliments when I took it to a gathering! I will definitely make this again!
I have made this recipe many times! Yes it does take a little work but is well worth it. The first couple times I followed the recipe exactly, except for that I only used chicken breasts and it was pretty good. Recently I've tried marinating the chicken breasts for a few hours in the sauce before grilling them=amazing results! The chicken is moist, delicious, has a great flavor and everyone loves them! Always a hit when I have guests over!
Super!! We used boneless/skinless breasts because I'm not a big fan of legs or thighs. I also wasn't paying attention and totally screwed up the recipe. I didn't cook any of the ingredients for the glaze before putting them in the blender, so I just blended it all and then simmered it. It was a lot easier that way! I also accidentally grabbed the worstishire sauce instead of the balsalmic. I did add the balsalmic as well after realizing my mistake. It was delicious all the same.
This was great! It took some prep work, but it was great for a nice relaxing evening in the kitchen with friends. I would like to have more of the grape flavor, so I might marinate it in the glaze next time, but it turned out pretty much like I anticipated. I will absolutely cook this again.
I will agree that this took a LOT of preparation. My finished product did not look at all like the picture but with constant basting on the grill, it was delicious!
While this was on the grill I also grilled corn-on-the-cob in the husks. I spread the corn with some butter and sprinkled some of the rosemary and this was a great compliment to the meal!
Not sure how often I would make this based on the time element involved.
