Chicken in almond and grape sauce

3 comments Aug 11th, 2010 | By | Category: easy and fast, Meat and Poultry, Recipes

The sauce looks like cream but it is not. It is an almond sauce, that is light and smooth and tastes great with some grapes in it. I serve this dish with rice or Bulgur and boiled vegetables.

Preparation time: 40 minutes

difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

  • 4 pieces of chicken
  • a hand full of almonds, peeled
  • a dash of white vinegar
  • a glas of white wine
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 hands full of grapes
  • some olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Preparation:

Put the almonds into a blender. Add a cup of water and blend until smooth. This may take up to 5 minutes.
Add a dash of vinegar.

Put some oil into a large frying pan. Fry the garlic on medium heat for a few minutes. Remove the garlic and add the chicken pieces to the pan. Fry on each side for 5 minutes. The meat should get crusty and tan.

Remove the meat from the pan. Add the white wine to the pan. Stir well and let it cook for a few minutes. Now add the almond sauce and the grapes. Let it boil and add the meat. Cover and let it simmer for 20 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the meat.
