  • 2 unpeeled medium Vidalia onions, halved
  • 1 pound small red potatoes
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons unsulfured molasses
  • Four 6-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. On half of a heavy-duty 2-by-1 1/2-foot sheet of foil, mound the onions and potatoes. Add 1/4 cup of the wine, the olive oil and bay leaves and season with salt and pepper. Fold the foil over the vegetables; seal the edges. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and bake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Peel and slice the onions.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, simmer the remaining 3 cups of wine with the mustard and molasses over moderately low heat, stirring, until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 35 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Put in a steamer basket, cover and steam over moderate heat for 8 minutes.

  4. Reheat the sauce. Spoon the vegetables onto plates, discarding the bay leaves. Set the chicken breasts alongside and spoon the sauce over them. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
