Chicken Cutlets with Grape-Shallot Sauce
One of the Test Kitchen's favorites, this quick sauté pairs wine and grapes in a luscious sauce for pan-seared chicken breasts. If you've never used grapes in a sauce before—try it—you won't be disappointed. This is simple enough for a weeknight, but elegant enough for entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with brown basmati rice or mashed sweet potatoes and sauteed chard.

- Sprinkle with 5 teaspoons of the reserved flour; stir to coat.
