"There is a place called The Fresh Market in Naples, Oh what a great store, I just love to browse in there forever. Every weekend they have cooking presentations. One week it was this recipe and it was simply outstanding. It was quick to put together and the chicken was ever so moist. The brand of chutney they used was Virginia Chutney Company in Spicy Plum. Really a delicious dish even to serve to company. Served with garlic mashed potatoes or wild rice....yummy"

Step 3

Remove pan from heat and add wine and scrape up bottom bits in pan

Step 4

Turn heat to low and return pan to heat. Add chutney and chicken stock stirring to mix. Return chicken and any dripping on plate and allow chicken to finish cooking through. (About 7 minutes). Serve immediately.

mmm YUM! Vergy delicious and would be a wonderful company meal. I wish i could have found the chunky plum sauce, but i had to be content with smooth plum sauce. it worked very well and did make a wonderful glaze. The red wine added a lovely richness to the glaze. Thanks for posting.
