Red wine and gin are the reasons for the recipe’s amusing name…and are also among the reasons for its unique flavor.

1/2 small onion, minced
1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 Tbs parsley
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1/2 cup chicken stock/broth
1/4 cup red wine
4 Tbs gin
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter sub and sauté the chicken until lightly browned on each side. Transfer to ovenproof dish.

Place remaining ingredients in a processor and puree, then add to skillet and heat through. Pour mixture over chicken and cover dish with lid or aluminum foil.
