Braly: Citrus brightens winter taste buds

January 20th, 2010 by Anne Braly in Blogsfood

When all other fruit is tasteless, winter brings us the best citrus fruit around. I've been amazed at the grapefruit I've been getting. The best I've had is from Walmart - $3 a bag containing six really big grapefruit. And I plan to save one for making this dish. It sounds excellent.

Roast Chicken with Carmelized Grapefruit

3 chicken breasts

1/4 cup oil

2 large sweet onions cut into 1-inch pieces

2 pink grapefruit, sectioned

1 cup white wine

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 / 3 cup grapefruit juice, reserved from sectioning

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

6 minced garlic cloves

In large skillet, heat oil. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken on medium-high heat, skin side down, about 4 minutes or until browned. Place chicken in shallow roasting pan. Add onions and grapefruit. Combine wine, brown sugar, grapefruit juice, parsley and garlic. Pour over chicken. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Makes 4 servings.
