Fruity Chicken with an Edamame Vegetable Salad

Posted 2017-08-12 by finyfollow

Summer fruits go very well with chicken in wine!

The slightly sweet marries with the dry white wine producing a very pleasant taste.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 3

For the chicken
About 4 chicken breasts (400 g)
¼ cup plain flour
¾ tsp salt
¼ tsp paprika powder
½ tsp curry powder
2 tbsp oil
½ orange, segmented
½ cup cherries, pitted
4 pineapple rings
½ avocado, cut
½ cup dry white wine
For the salad
1 cup Edamame beans, shelled, defrosted
½ cup cucumber, chopped
1 tbsp green capsicums, chopped
2 tbsp red capsicum, chopped
1 tbsp onion, minced
¼ cup celery, sliced
¼ cup mushrooms, sliced
¼ cup broccoli, diced
For the Dressing
1 tbsp vinegar
Drop of balsamic vinegar
1½ tbsp oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp sesame seeds

For the salad
  • Make the salad first by combining all the vegetables.

  • Mix the dressing well.

  • Add the dressing to the vegetables and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.

  • For the chicken
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190°/170° fan forced.

  • Mix the flour, salt and paprika.

  • Dip the chicken into this mixture and shake off the excess flour.

  • Brown gently on all sides in the oil.

  • Put it in an ovenproof dish.

  • Add the wine, cover and bake for about 15 minutes.

  • Take out of the oven and arrange the orange segments, cherries and pineapple rings over the chicken.

  • You may need to add some more wine if the liquid has cooked away, however I did not.

  • Put it back in the oven and bake, uncovered for about 15 more minutes or until the chicken is baked - make sure you do not overcook it as it is lovely and juicy if not overcooked, and dry if overcooked. I always use free range chickens as they seem to be more tender.

  • Garnish each serving with avocado pieces, and serve with the salad.
