DIRECTIONS

  • Clean and cube chicken breasts and place in a plastic zippy bag with the red wine. Expel the extra air, squish the chicken and wine around for a minute, then allow the chicken to marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours at least, three hours is better. The longer you leave it in, the more tender the chicken will be.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet and saute the onions and garlic with a bit of salt and pepper until onions are translucent.
  • Reserve the wine marinade and add the chicken to the skillet. Add basil and paprika and stir fry the chicken until no longer pink inside.
  • Pour the marinade into the skillet and allow it to come to a boil. The marinade will thicken just a bit as it cooks. Boiling gets rid of not only the alcohol, but also any germs in the marinade left over from the raw chicken.
  • Taste it and re-season if necessary.
  • Serve chicken over rice and drizzle wine sauce on top.
  • Enjoy!
  • Note: You'll enjoy this much more if you use a wine that you would drink. The cooking wines in the grocery store are no good for something like this, but you can find a good, drinkable bottle of wine for under $10.
