Manhattan-Glazed Chicken

Photo: Iain Bagwell; Styling: Mary Clayton Carl

Serve with Glazed Baby Carrots and Wilted Spinach with Fresh Chile. Here we riff off the flavors of a Manhattan cocktail, which is traditionally made with rye whiskey or bourbon, maraschino cherries, and orange rind. For less of a bourbon kick, boil the bourbon in the sauce for a minute before spooning over the chicken.

Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and about 1 tablespoon glaze)
