We really liked the flavor of this dish. After mixing up the sauce I couldn't understand why this shouldn't be cooked with the chicken and that is what I did. Just poured on top and then added the sliced grapes before the end of cooking. I am kind of surprised that no on has suggested using a combination of green and red grapes to make the dish more visually pleasing. I did this with good results. Served with brown rice. Read More

I'm sorry. Everyone seems to like this recipe but I hated it. I thought the sauce was terrible. I think it was the vinegar I didn't like. My family liked it though. I served it with white rice and peas. I liked the first few bites then I had to really choke the rest down. After I realized I didn't like the sauce I tried to add a few more spices (garlic salt onion powder oregano a little of the chicken broth) and a little flour to thicken it up a bit. It was OK at best to me but as I said the rest of the family liked it. None of us cared for the cooked grapes however. Not the worst I've ever had but I think if I ever make this again I will omit the vinegar. Read More

I will admit I was very skeptical about the Dijon mustard sauce as I am not generally a fan of mustard. But this was a most excellent recipe!!! I quartered the grapes (thought the whole grapes wouldn't integrate well at eating time and I'm glad I did it this way) but other than that strictly followed the recipe. I don't really understand the comments by those that were disappointed with this recipe but I guess to each his or her own. I made if for a friend that is on a fat-restricted diet due to MS and it was a bit hit. Thanks for a great recipe! I have added it to my "repertoire" and will be making this again. Read More

If you don't want to use the oven (too hot during the summer where I live for that!) here's a stove-top version: Use the sauce as a marinade (including minced garlic - I used four cloves) for four chicken breasts cut into large pieces (I also added a little oil). After marinating for a couple hours heat a little oil in a pan and saute chicken and sauce for 25-30 minutes. Add grapes (which I also halved) ten minutes before serving. Serve with rice. I also used balsamic vinegar and I omitted the seseame seeds for this version. Read More

Had the girls over for a luncheon and I try to find new interesting recipes. This one fit the bill they all loved it and asked for the recipe. When combining sauce ingredients do it over low heat and whisk to blend. I especially liked the flavor of the toasted sesame seeds and the grapes added an extra dimension except when you reheat it - don't like hot grapes!! Read More

This recipe turned out great! Following advice from others I added the sauce 5 minutes before adding the grapes except I added all of it! It baked in giving a wonderful taste to the chicken. As well for added texture I added sliced mushrooms and onions when I flipped the chicken over. My wife and I loved it! Read More

This recipe is easy unique and tasty. I used 6 chicken breasts and 1 cup of quartered grapes. Poured a small amount of sauce on the breasts for the last 5 mins of baking and left the rest to taste. I will definitely make this recipe again. Read More

Great twist on Chicken recipes. The grapes sounded somewhat questionable but I went ahead with them only slicing them in half. Surprise! What a great accompaniment to the nutty chicken. Most definitely use the sauce. It adds that special touch and flavor. Read More
