  5. NOTES:

  6. * Chicken in wine with grapes and orange — This recipe was originally posted by Wayne Thompson. I thought it was great, and I submit it here with some variations. This colors in this dish are a feast for the eyes. The recipe comes originally from ‘Elegant Meals with Inexpensive Meats,’ by Ortho Books. Servings: Serves 4 to 6.

  7. * (WT) I use a whole cut up chicken.

  8. * (CSR) I like to cook the chicken in a black cast-iron pan; I skip the cream sauce, because it smothers the beautiful black-green-red-orange-tan colors.

  9. : Difficulty: easy.

  10. : Time: 30 minutes.

  11. : Precision: approximate measurement OK. :
