Don't you just love Julia Child? I'm always surprised though, when this particular recipe doesn't show up in her republished books. It's easy and always delivers a very tender chicken breast. Heat 2 tablespoons of Frantoio olive oil in a large saute pan and brown the chicken breasts on both sides. Remove the chicken breasts and deglaze the pan with 1/3 cup of Cabernet Sauvignon vinegar. Reduce until very syrupy. Add 1/3 cup dry white wine. Reduce until very syrupy. Add 1 cup chicken broth, 3 tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup finely minced parsley. Place chicken back in the pan, cover, and reduce heat to a low simmer. Cook for about 15 minutes. Serve with potatoes roasted in Frantoio olive oil. Simple and good. My favorite kind of dinner to make.
