CHICKEN IN WINE SAUCE
Yield: 2 servings
2 Pre-grilled chicken breast 2 tb Teriyaki or ginger sauce
Filets (see note) 1/2 c Tomato sauce
1/2 lb Sliced mushrooms 32 oz White wine (see note)
2 md Onions, coarsely chopped Oil
-(see note) Parsley
1 tb Chrushed garlic Basil
2 Green onions, minced, Spike
-including green portions Arrowroot (see note)
Warm large saute pan over range and add oil when hot. Do not use a strong
flavored oil and use sparingly. The oil is mostly to coat the vegetables.
Add the onions and stir until they become hot. Add the mushrooms and stir
well into the onions. When mushrooms become heated add the garlic. Stir
very well. After a minute or so ( do not burn the garlic) add the wine to
stop the cooking process of the garlic.
Add the teriyaki sauce, spices, and green onion to the wine/vegie mixture.
Bring to a low simmer and add the chicken. Simmer chicken about 15 minutes
on each side, turning once. Occasionally stir the sauce.
When sauce and chicken has cooked about 20 minutes, add the tomato sauce
and stir in well.
When the chicken is done, remove from the sauce. Sauce should be reduced
by about half at that point. Add small amounts of arrowroot and stir
quickly until gravy like thickness is achieved. Return the chicken to the
sauce. Serve sauce over rice.
Note on chicken: We used Tyson pre-cooked breast filets with the mesquite
grilling and they worked well. If you use an uncooked breast filet,
pre-cook it before adding to sauce. as the cooking in the sauce is mainly
to mix the flavors.
Note on onions: If you can get them use Walla Walla sweet onions. Vidalia
onions are also a good choice. If sweet onions are not available, use the
mildest onion you can find.
Note on wine: This dish does not require an expensive wine, but use a wine
that you enjoy drinking. The wine flavor will be a major flavor in the
Note on arrowroot: Arrowroot is tapioca ground up to a fine powder. It
thickens a dish instantly and adds no flavor to the dish. For dishes like
this where flavors of the thickener could change the flavor of the dish, it
works very well.
