Friday Food: Chicken w/ Grapefruit

By: Joel Luedke

Continuing with our chicken theme from last week but changing up the flavor substantially.  There are a lot of additions to this one that as always you can customize to your taste (personally not a huge fan of watercress).  Enjoy this one for a date night or just to change it up this weekend.

-4 boneless chicken breasts
-1/2 tsp dried thyme
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
-2 tbsp olive oil
-1/4 cup dry white wine
-1/4 cup chicken broth
-3 tbsp grapefruit juice
-2 tsp honey
-3 cups trimmed watercress
-2 grapefruit, cut into segments

Cooking Directions: 
1. Season chicken with thyme and half of the salt and pepper.
2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Brown chicken, 6 minutes per side.  Add wine, broth, juice, and honey. Simmer until reduced to 1/3 cup.  Season with remaining salt and pepper.
3. Put watercress and grapefruit on 4 plates.  Top with chicken and sauce.
