Chicken Cutlets with Grape-Shallot Sauce

Chicken Cutlets with Grape-Shallot Sauce

One of the Test Kitchen’s favorites, this quick sauté pairs wine and grapes in a luscious sauce for pan-seared chicken breasts. If you’ve never used grapes in a sauce before—try it—you won’t be disappointed. This is simple enough for a weeknight, but elegant enough for entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with brown basmati rice or mashed sweet potatoes and sauteed chard.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 chicken breast cutlets, trimmed (about 1 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 5 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 2 cups halved seedless green or red grapes
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour (reserve excess flour). Heat 3 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until golden on the first side, 2 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, turn the chicken and cook until the other side is golden, 2 to 4 minutes more. Transfer to a plate.

Step 2

Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until just starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add grapes and cook, stirring occasionally, until just starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with 5 teaspoons of the reserved flour; stir to coat. Add wine and broth; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up any browned bits, until the sauce is reduced and thickened, about 8 minutes. Stir in parsley.

Step 3

Return the chicken to the pan, turning to coat with sauce, and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve with the sauce.
