Health Highlights


2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1 dash Black pepper
2 large Carrots (cut in pieces)
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 breast Chicken breast, skinless
2 tbsp Cornstarch (mixed with 1 tbsp of water)
2 clove(s) Garlic (crushed)
1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream, 38% M.F.
1 dash Nutmeg, ground
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
1 sprig Parsley, fresh (for garnish)
4 medium mushroom(s) Portobello mushroom
1/2 cup Raisins, seedless (sultana) (dark)
1 cup Red wine (port wine)
1 dash Salt (to taste)
2 medium shallot(s) Shallots (diced)
1 bunch Green onion (for garnish)


Soak the raisins in the port wine for at least 1 hour or, preferably, overnight.

Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC) degrees.

In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. When hot, sear the chicken breasts on one side until golden brown. Turn the chicken over and brown the other side. Transfer to an ovenproof dish. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, in the skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the shallots,
garlic and carrots and sauté them for 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and sauté them for 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and reduce until almost dry. Stir in the raisins and their soaking liquid. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half.

Add the cream, nutmeg, cayenne, and cornstarch mixture. Cook for 2 more minutes, but do not bring to a boil. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

Spoon the sauce onto serving plates, set a chicken breast on top, spoon two tablespoons of sauce on top and garnish with the carrots, and fresh herbs.
