    Chicken With Spicy Chipotle Butter Sauce

  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves -- pounded thin
    SAUCE:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter -- cold + cut in sm pc
  • 1 lg shallot -- minced
  • 1 lg clove garlic -- minced
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp Lulu Cherry Fig Balsamic Vinegar -- * see note
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce- -- pureed
  • 1 tbsp light cream
  • 1 tsp adobo sauce -- from canned chile
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and 2 tsp of the butter. Reserve the rest for later.

    Add chicken and cook it for 5 minutes until it is no longer pink inside, but not browned. Make sure that the juices run clear.

    Place chicken on plate and cover loosely to keep warm. In a small cup, mix together the chipotle, adobo sauce, light cream, salt and pepper.

    Add onion and garlic to skillet. Cook for 2 minutes until onion is soft. Add water and balsamic vinegar. Cook until most of the liquid is evaporated. Reduce heat to medium.

    Whisk in remaining butter, one tbsp at a time. Add chipotle mixture. Cook for one minute to heat chipotle mixture. Stir to mix well.

    To serve:
    Place a chicken breast on the plate. Drizzle with some of the sauce. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes** and grilled asparagus.

    NOTES : Risa's notes:
    * Obviously if you don't have this specific balsamic vinegar, use the kind you have - plain will do.

    ** If you don't feel like making fresh mashed potatoes, take a package of Betty Crocker Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Place the potato/flavor package and put it in a microwave container. Add 1 tbsp of roasted garlic puree (Tra Vigne makes a great one that you can buy at Williams-Sonoma) along with the water, milk and butter that it asks for. Whisk well. Cook on HIGH for 4 minutes. Whip well. Tastes pretty darn good!
