Chicken and grapes, a skillet-sharing odd couple.
Ingredients
  • 1 pound red or green grapes
  • 6 pieces chicken, drumsticks and thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 sprigs rosemary
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons shallot, minced
  • ¼ cup white wine (Riesling recommended)
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • Fresh parsley for serving, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Toss grapes with a tablespoon of olive oil and pinch of salt and place in a cast iron skillet.
  3. Place chicken pieces in a large bowl and cover with the remaining oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, rosemary, and salt and pepper.
  4. Rub the seasonings into the chicken.
  5. Settle the chicken pieces snugly among the grapes in the skillet and roast in the oven for 35 minutes.
  6. Remove the chicken and grapes from the pan to a plate and discard all but a tablespoon and a half's worth of the fat in the skillet.
  7. Over medium heat, add in the minced shallot and cook until soft.
  8. Add in the white wine and chicken stock and cook until reduced.
  9. Finally, lower the heat and add in the heavy cream, reducing until thick.
  10. Serve this sauce over the chicken and grapes and garnish with parsley.
