Lemon Parmesan Chicken

3-4 chicken breasts
1/4 lb butter (1 cube)
1 T white grape juice concentrate
2 T lemon juice
2 tsp grated lemon peel
1 c. Heavy whipping cream
6 thin pats of butter
Parmesan cheese

  1. Salt and pepper the chicken.
  2. Sauté in butter, both sides about 6-8 min (until cooked through).
  3. Remove chicken and place in oven-proof dish.
  4. Add grape juice concentrate, lemon peel, and lemon juice to frying pan.
  5. Cook one minute to deglaze juices.
  6. Add cream SLOWLY and stir (if you add cream too fast it gets really runny).
  7. Pour over chicken.
  8. Place thin pats of butter on each piece of chicken and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  9. Brown under a broiler for 2 to 5 minutes until cheese has melted.
  10. Serve over couscous or noodles with poppy seeds.
Notes: This is a delicious recipe that we'll be having again. The sauce also works well with just the pasta and without chicken, so making extra sauce is a good thing.
