My life will never be the same.I recently started following How Sweet It Is. When Jessica posted a Sangria Chicken recipe a few days ago, I commented telling her "I must make this". I wasn't lying. I followed her recipe to a tee, so if you want it, check out her blog. I took a few pictures along the way to document the ingredients. Naturally, the recipe calls for red wine! I purchased an inexpensive bottle of Merlot. This wine is full of vibrant fresh blueberry flavors with hints of plum and blackberry. I couldn't have picked a better wine to get the job done.
I rarely buy grapes. I forgot how potently sweet and juicy these little guys are.
The red wine and marmalade are reduced to form the Sangria glaze, while the chicken bakes. The halved grapes and lime wedges will serve as garnishes. The chicken and sangria are all prepared. They are just about to go back into the oven for another 10 minutes.
I paired the dish with sliced avocado and Near East Garlic and Herb Rice Pilaf. It was a really good dinner.
What adult beverage can I turn into an entree next?! And by that I mean, who's recipe can I confiscate?
