Any recipe with the name Veronique will have grapes in it. When buying grapes at the supermarket, you can tell how fresh they are by how green and pliable the stem is. Another way of telling is to give the bunch a quick shake. If it’s fresh, none of the individual grapes should fall from the bunch. I should warn you, though, that shaking the bunch will not do anything for your popularity with the store’s produce manager.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves or 1 thin sliced boneless roaster breast
1 tablespoon unsalted margarine
1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup seedless green grapes, halved
Remove and discard any visible fat. Butterfly breast halves to make scaloppine. Skip the previous step if you are using thin sliced boneless roaster breasts. Rub with lemon and sprinkle lightly with pepper. In large skillet over medium heat, melt margarine. Add scaloppine, in batches if necessary, so that they do not touch. Saute 4 minutes, turning once, until chicken is lightly browned on both sides and just cooked through. Remove from skillet; keep warm.
In small bowl, stir together cornstarch, broth and wine until smooth; add to skillet. Over medium heat, bring to boil; boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in grapes until heated through. To serve, spoon grapes and sauce over chicken.
