Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Feta


inspiration: the gorgeous pears at the farmer's market

result: Balsamic Chicken with Pears and Feta
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp chardonnay
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sugar (or splenda)
salt
pepper
2 pears (not over-ripe), sliced
3 Tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
sprigs of rosemary (optional for garnish)
-combine 1/2 cup chardonnay, 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, dash of salt, dash of pepper, 1 Tbsp olive oil in a medium bowl, then add chicken and turn to coat
-in a another small bowl combine remaining balsamic vinegar, remaining chardonnay, chicken broth, and sugar, set aside
-let chicken marinate for at least 20 minutes, then discard marinade
-heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil in large pan over medium heat and add chicken, turning once and cooking until juices run clear (about 8-10 minutes)
-remove chicken to a plate and saute sliced pears in the same pan for 1 minute
-re-add the chicken to the pan, and pour the mixture from the small bowl over both the chicken and the pears, cook for 3-minutes until liquid begins to bubble
-remove the chicken to plates, top evenly with pears and crumbled feta
-let pan sauce boil for one minute and then drizzle over the chicken
-garnish with rosemary if using and serve immediately
this is a little more work than most of my summer meals. It took about 45 minutes including the time to marinate the chicken, but it was well worth it. It has a subtle, sweet flavor that's nicely balanced by the strong feta.
