This year I’m totally motivated to make healthy recipes that you will love and this Quick Chicken with Grapes is one of them. Requiring 40 minutes it is a perfect weekend dish. The result is yummy and delicious. Try a new & simple way of cooking chicken adding grapes and rosemary. Are you making it?
As you probably has realize most of my recipes are plant based, but I eat meat from time to time. Weekends are usually for meat recipes like this chicken with grapes. I usually buy organic chicken or turkey for stews. The chicken in this recipe is particularly yummy and flavourful thanks to the grapes and rosemary.
We loved the result and thought that it was a delicious and original recipe to share with you. At home my mum cooks her typical chicken with beer and we all love it and I wanted to make a similar recipe but adding new flavours to it. What I love most in this quick chicken recipe is the sweetness from the grapes. If you serve it with couscous it makes a proper and nutritious meal. The sauce will moist the couscous and make every bite equally delicious.
We recommend you try this other chicken recipe: Healthy Chicken Curry and if you have any other suggestion let me know on the comments.

This Quick Chicken with Grapes is particularly yummy and flavourful thanks to the grapes and rosemary.
- 400 g organic chicken breast or 6 chicken drumsticks
- 1 red onion, quartered
- 1 carrot, finely sliced
- 1 small rosemary or thyme spring
- 1/2 cup of beer or white wine
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup white grapes (can also use red grapes)
- Salt and pepper
Very lightly add salt & pepper to chicken drumsticks.
Heat a pan with 2 Tbsp of olive oil on medium high until hot. Add chicken and cook for 3’ on each side, until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
In the same pan, add onion and carrots, stir well. Cook on a medium-low heat for 10’.
Return chicken drumsticks to the pan and stir in the beer. Cook off the beer for a couple minutes on a medium-high heat until it reduces a bit.
Add water and a thyme spring. Bring to a boil, let reduce and thicken slightly for 5’. Stir in the grapes and cook for another 5’. It is ready!
It can be served over couscous or rice, or just enjoyed on its own. Garnish with more thyme and serve hot.
