I made this Grilled Chicken in Garlic and White Wine Sauce for Winefest this past weekend. When we were trying to come up with a name for it, we considered Chicken Awesomeness, but thought that wasn’t descriptive enough. We settled on Grilled Chicken in Garlic and White Wine Sauce because the sauce is what made this dish so fabulous!
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 10 min; Cook Time – 15 min.
Ingredients for 4 people:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 T. salted butter
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. flour
1/2 c. chicken broth
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 c. white wine (preferably sauvignon blanc)
1/2 tsp. salt (plus more for seasoning chicken)
1/4 tsp. pepper (plus more for seasoning chicken)
1 c. light sour cream
Preparing Grilled Chicken in Garlic and White Wine Sauce:
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken until no longer pink inside. The exact amount of time will depend on the thickness of the breasts.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. When the butter starts to bubble, add the garlic and stir for about a minute. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly, for one minute. Reduce heat to medium and add chicken broth, wine, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook until sauce starts to thicken (about 3-4 minutes). Stir in sour cream and continue cooking over medium heat until heated through (about 5 minutes).
Serve the sauce hot over the chicken!!
The sauce would be good on just about any poultry. I might try it on top of steamed vegetables or roasted potatoes next!
