Chicken with Blue Cheese and Grapes

This “fancied” up chicken dish combines the flavors of sweet with salty!



Cooking spray

4-4 ounce raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Ground black pepper

1 Tablespoon olive oil

¼ cup diced shallot

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour

½ cup dry white wine

⅓ cup unsalted chicken stock

4 sprigs of rosemary

2 cups red grapes, halved

½ cup crumbled blue cheese



1. Spray large skillet with cooking spray. Season chicken breasts on both sides with pepper and cook over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned. Place chicken on a plate and set aside.

2. Add oil to skillet and sauté shallot and garlic for 2-3 minutes. Whisk in flour until blended, cooking until light brown, about 1-2 minutes. Carefully, pour in wine and stock, whisking until smooth.

3. Place rosemary stems in sauce, return chicken to skillet, turn up heat to high and bring to a boil. Return heat to medium-high, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove lid, add grapes and cook an additional 3-4 minutes.

4. Serve topped with blue cheese.
