"New Year's Eve, 9 p.m. and no idea what I'm going to cook for my husband and I for dinner. My husband was already suggesting Chinese delivery. I felt bad and thought it would be the good wife thing to end the year with a cooked meal. This is what I came up with: chicken breast with red grapes and kalamata olives plated with wild brown rice and your favorite vegetable. Sherry may be substituted for the muscat wine."

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
salt and ground black pepper to taste
pitted kalamata olives
red seedless grapes
crumbled feta cheese
orange muscat wine
The chicken was dry and while the flavor was initially tasty, it leaves a bitter-tangy aftertaste that I just didn't like. The reduction is like a sweet marsala sauce. The recipe would probably be better with a different wine. Not likely to make again.
I substituted sherry for the muscat wine, and it turned out very well. The only negative thing I can find to say at all is that I found my chicken got a little dry and tough from being in the pan so long after it was finished cooking, to give the sauce time to cook. Still, my husband and I just had it for Valentine's dinner with some green beans amandine and roasted herbed potatoes, and it was delicious! Thanks!
I didn't have any orange muscat but I did have Marsala, also a sweet wine, so I used that. I cut the chicken breasts into strips because they were quite large and I wanted to speed up the process. The dish turned out really well, my husband liked it so we will probably have it again.
