Sangria Butter Sauce

Another important component to this recipe is the Sangria Butter Sauce. You guys know I love Sangria, so bringing that flavor into a sauce to eat with chicken just seemed like the perfect idea. By combining white wine with citrus juices, then cooking it with heavy cream and butter, I made the creamiest, dreamiest sauce to use as a base for this dish. The hint of citrus blends so well with the mango salsa!

Ingredients
For the Sangria Butter Sauce:
  • 1 cup dry or semi-dry white wine (wine that one would drink)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons Chambord liqueur
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • pinch of fine sea salt or kosher salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter diced
For the Marinated Chicken:
  • ¼ cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon herbes de Provence
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 medium chicken breasts
For the Mango Salsa:
  • 1 64 ounce container Mango chunks, drained
  • ½ red onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and minced
  • Juice and zest from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh mint chopped
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Pico Fruta Penzey’s or small pinch cayenne pepper
Instructions
For the Sangria Butter Sauce:
  1. In a saucepan, combine wine, lemon juice, orange juice, orange zest and Chambord liqueur. Bring to a boil, over medium heat, and reduce by half.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low, add in the cream and, again, reduce by half.
  3. Reduce heat to low and whisk in the cold butter.
  4. Keep the sauce warm until ready to serve.
For the Marinated Chicken:
  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients and rub the mixture over the chicken breasts. Marinate the chicken 30 minutes at room temperature or up to 3 hours, refrigerated. If the chicken is refrigerated, bring it back to room temperature before cooking it. Roast the chicken in a 375°F oven for 15 minutes or charbroil it in the grill. When tested with a meat thermometer, the internal temperature for chicken breasts should read 155-160°F.
For the Mango Salsa:
  1. In a medium-size mixing bowl, gently toss together all salsa ingredients. (*NOTE: The salsa should not be made more than 4 hours prior to serving.) If made ahead, keep refrigerated in an airtight container. The salsa will get a little juicy, so use a slotted spoon to spoon the salsa over the chicken.
To Serve:
  1. Spoon the sangria butter on the bottom of a serving platter, set the chicken breasts over the sangria butter and top the breasts with mango salsa.
