Poulet Vèronique

Recipe by COOKGIRl

Adapted by me from my copy of '365 Ways to Cook Chicken' cookbook and several online recipes. I used both green and red grapes for added color. Serve with simple sides such as saffron rice or roasted new potatoes; lightly steamed seasonal vegetables or an uncomplicated mesclun salad. Elegant yet easy main dish!

We really enjoyed this. My grand kids loved the idea of grapes with their chicken. lol. My sauce didn't thicken so I ended up adding a little bit of a slurry which worked well. Thanks for sharing a nice keeper, CG. Made for Bevy tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound the chicken thighs to roughly 1/4" thickness but no more than 1/2".
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a large sautè pan on medium heat.
  3. Combine the flour and garlic powder and lightly dredge the chicken pieces. Tip: I use a fine mesh strainer and lightly and evenly sprinkled the flour on the chicken.
  4. Brown chicken on both sides, about 10 minutes total.
  5. Remove chicken to a warming plate.
  6. Deglaze the pan with the white wine and chicken stock, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan.
  7. Whisk in the Dijon mustard, bringing mixture to a boil until the liquid has reduced and thickened, about 4-5 minutes.
  8. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in the heavy cream. Place the chicken thighs back in the pan along with the grapes.
  9. Heat through until warm (but *not* boiling), stirring mixture often for about 2-3 minutes; lowering the heat further if necessary.
  10. Transfer chicken to a platter, pour the cream sauce over the chicken then season with salt and pepper.
  11. Garnish with lemon zest and fresh parsley or French tarragon.
