Tasty and very easy yet elegant. The white grape juice ended up being too sweet for my taste, but it made the chicken very moist. Next time I'll try 1/2 c water or broth plus 1/2 c juice to cut down on the sweetness. I also reduced the pan juices and served it on the side. Try it with Spinach and Onion Couscous http://www.recipezaar.com/80667 it pairs well. Thanks for sharing!!!
