As one who follows the Mediterranean-style of eating, chicken and extra virgin olive oil are my staple foods. Combining these nutrient-rich ingredients in different preparations helps keep my pallet excited for each new meal. Here’s one of my favorite out of the box dishes to prepare!
What You Need
For the Chicken
- Four 5-ounce chicken breast fillets
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of onion powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
For the Sauce
- 1-1/2 cups of chicken broth
- 1/2 cup of white wine
- 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
- 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of corn starch
- 1 tablespoon of water
- Pinch of white pepper
How To Prepare
In a bowl, marinate the chicken with the spices and then set it aside for 10 minutes. Heat up your grill to a medium-high heat and place the chicken on the grill with the skin side down and mark for about 3 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and then place the grilled chicken on a baking pan. Bake the chicken for a total of 20 minutes, remove it from the oven and then set it aside.
In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat, add the chopped garlic, and sauté it for 3 minutes until the garlic starts to turn light brown. Next, add the wine, chicken stock and white pepper and then bring the mixture to a boil. Once it’s boiling, add the corn starch with the water and allow the sauce to thicken. Cook the mixture for one more minute and then remove it from the stove.
Serve the sauce over the chicken for a hearty meal.
