Chicken with grapes and sweet wine

Serves 4 to 6 – ideally serve with toast or grilled polenta.


  • 50g butter
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • 4 chicken quarters
  • 2-4 whole garlic cloves
  • 150ml marsala or a sweet white wine (or dry wine plus 1-2 tpsns sugar)
  • 500gms of white seedless grapes


Head butter with 1 tbsp oil; add rosemary and chicken; brown chicken and add salt and pepper; add garlic cloves and let color, then pour in wine and more salt; cover and simmer until tender; cook uncovered at the end to reduce sauce if necessary.

Meanwhile heat the remaining oil in a pan and put in the grapes; cook over low heat for 10-20mins turning at least once.

Once chicken is done and sauce reduced, pour over the grapes.
