I just love this sauce, and it is so easy to put together, too. Though I haven't tried it with chicken yet, I think it would be great with 4 chicken breast fillets substituted for the pork chops--simply increase the simmering time (in step number 6).
- add 1/2 cup cold water
- add 1 shallot
- add 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- add 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
- add 2 cloves garlic
- add 1 tablespoon olive oil
- add 4 boneless pork chops
- add 1 cup chicken broth
- add 10 sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped (NOT oil-packed)
- add 1/4 cup madeira wine
- In a small saucepan, cover the sun-dried tomato pieces with chicken broth and madeira; bring to a boil, remove from heat and allow to stand about 10 minutes to plump the tomatoes.
- Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-heat.
- Add the pork chops and brown on both sides; remove from skillet and set aside.
- Add shallots and garlic to the skillet and cook briefly (till they become fragrant).
- Stir in tomatoes with the liquid and chopped rosemary.
- Return the chops to the skillet, cover tightly and cook over low heat (just simmering) for 5 to 6 minutes (longer as needed for chicken breasts) until they are cooked through.
- Remove the meat from the skillet to serving platter.
- Combine water and cornstarch; add to the skillet.
- Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.
- Top the meat with the sauce and serve.
