I love this recipe; it’s like a healthy Thanksgiving meal in a 25 minute, 1-pot dinner. I’ve been making a conscious effort to eat more fruit, and this is the perfect way to sneak some in at dinnertime. I’ve adapted this recipe from Whole Living’s Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Bon Appetit’s Chicken with Roasted Grapes. While this recipe is super-simple, it’s quite elegant and nice for a visit from the parents or a stay-in dinner date. Enjoy!
Sage Roasted chicken with Apples, Grapes, and Shallots
2 Chicken Breasts, skin on, de-boned
10 leaves fresh sage, chopped
2-3 bunches seedless red grapes
1 shallot, chopped
1 red apple, chopped
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup whole wheat couscous
Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large heavy bottomed pot or skillet, place sage, grapes, shallot, and apple. Nestle the chicken breasts in the middle of the pot. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Place in oven and bake 25-30 minutes until chicken is cooked through and skin is crispy.
Meanwhile, cook couscous according to package directions.
Once chicken is done, remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes on a separate plate. Add red wine vinegar to the pot and add in the cooked couscous, stir in the apples with couscous. Slice chicken. Plate the couscous and place the chicken on top. Enjoy!
