Prep Time
4 Mins
Cook Time
17 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 2 tablespoons raisin sauce)

Most of the sake's alcohol content will evaporate during cooking, but stirring an extra tablespoon of sake into the finished sauce enhances the dish without overpowering it.

Prep: 4 minutes; Cook: 17 minutes

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle both sides of chicken with salt and red pepper, rubbing to evenly distribute spices. Coat chicken with cooking spray.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray; add chicken. Cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned; add 1/2 cup sake, juice, and raisins. Cover and cook 6 minutes or until chicken is done. Uncover and transfer chicken to individual plates. Cook raisin mixture, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates.

Step 3

Remove pan from heat; stir in 1 tablespoon sake. Spoon raisin sauce evenly over chicken.

Really enjoyed this recipe. Things I did differently are: - cooked chicken in stainless steel pan (not nonstick). Produces better texture, imo. - used regular olive oil, not cooking spray - used 4x the spice mixture and added pepper and Emeril's Essence spice mix - used Cranberry - Pomegranate juice (couldn't find Cherry Pomegranate) - used tart dried cherries (not sweet) I would definitely make this again!

I love the recipe!! I used pomegranate cherry juice and cherries. Cutting the chicken breasts to make them thinner would help the chicken be juicier but it was delicious. Definitely a repeat!

I thought the sauce was delicious, I used cherries, not raisins.

Not very good. Chicken should be grilled or sauteed with some flour for crispness. Cooking times also are inaccurate. Sauce was alright, but the chicken was bland.
