Recipe Ingredients for Poached Chicken Breast with Blackberry Sauce

2 cups water
1 cup dry white wine
1 g bay leaf
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 carrot, coarsely chopped
4 g celery, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
1 lbs chicken breast halves

Blackberry Cabernet Sauce:
2 cups blackberries
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup red wine

Recipe Directions for Poached Chicken Breast with Blackberry Sauce

  1. Make Sauce: In a food processor or blender, puree and then strain enough blackberries to measure 1 cup pulp. In a large frying pan, saute onion in olive oil approximately 5 minutes or until onions are transparent. Add the blackberry pulp, sugar, and wine. Simmer sauce until reduced to approximately 1/2 the original quantity. Remove from heat and let cool. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  2. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the water, wine, bay leaf, onion, carrot, celery leaves, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil and boil 5 minutes. Add chicken pieces; bring back to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let pot stand, covered, until cool.

  3. Lift chicken pieces from cooking stock with a slotted utensil. Skin and bone the breast halves and slice thinly lengthwise, holding them in their original shape as you work. Arrange the sliced breast on a platter, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.

  4. To serve, fan out chicken slices on individual plates and top with blackberry sauce.
