Yummmm this sounds great. I also like the wine poached chicken idea... Jimjimrug1 in Peoria loved it
Love the pistachio nut and grapefruit combo. I adore grapefruit and this was a special treat. Made a very good lunch. I left out the cilantro-hubby can't abide the stuff. Very nice method in poaching the chicken boobs, by the way.notyourmomma in South St. Petersburg loved it
