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.

A Definite Do-Over!

A good friend of mine posted on Facebook and as I am always looking to try new recipes, did. This was more delicious than I imagined. Very easy to make. We both enjoyed it immensely and will definitely make it again soon.

Brought the leftovers for lunch and shared the recipe with co-workers. Yummy.

One Pan, quick weeknight dinner, delicious
Love this one!

I was looking for a way to use turkey cutlets and grapes as I had both these items to use up in my fridge. Googled and found this. The turkey was excellent with this sauce. Had no shallots so used sweet onions sliced thin. No white wine so used all chicken broth (low-sodium). So good, easy and elegant. I think it would be a good make ahead company dinner. Heat up and finish last steps just before serving. I will make this again. Husband loved it too!

Easy, tasty, different

This was one of the best meals I've ever made. I used red grapes in the sauce. It was juicy and flavorful. Everyone in the family enjoyed it greatly. I'll definitely be making this again.


Initially, I was put off by the idea of shallots and grapes together...boy, was I wrong! This meal was packed with flavor and caused all who ate to become instant members of the "Clean Plate Club!" I'll use this again!
