I love how sometimes a plan for dinner comes together so perfectly. One day last week, I was trying to come up with a plan for dinner. Initially, I was drawing a blank, so I asked Steve what he thought he would like. He started throwing out some ideas and when he said bone in chicken, it all came together. I decided that we could roast some bone in chicken breasts in the oven. As far as how to flavor the chicken, my first thought was BBQ sauce, but then I thought it would be even better to make a cherry port glaze. To round out the meal I made some garlic mashed potatoes and a tossed salad. It was quite delicious!
To make the glaze, I sauteed a shallot and then added some port wine, cherry preserves, a little dried thyme and some black pepper. I simmered it until it reduced into a nice glaze. Very simple and very good!
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup port
- 1/2 cup cherry preserves
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- salt and pepper
- 4 bone in chicken breasts
