    Default Chicken Flambe with Brandied Cherry Sauce

    here's an elegant, romantic, and simple recipe...
    Chicken Flambe with Brandied Cherry Sauce
    2 8-oz chicken breasts with bone and skin
    1 tbs melted butter
    1 tsp paprika
    1 ounce brandy
    pinch salt and white pepper to taste
    Bing Cherry Sauce:
    8-oz can black bing cherries
    2 tbs Burgundy wine
    2 tbs sugar
    1/2 tsp cornstarch

    pinch salt
    Preparing Bing Cherry Sauce: Drain juice from cherries. Combine juice with wine, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Mix thoroughly. Bring mixture to a boil until sauce thickens. Add the drained cherries.
    Chicken: Season chicken breast with salt, white pepper, paprika, and brush with butter. Bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees F. or until cooked and tender. Place chicken in a medium-size ovenproof serving dish and cover with sauce. Have table set, candles lit, all accompaniments on table, and turn off lights when ready to flambé.
    How to Flambé: Pour 1/4 ounce of brandy over dish and place in middle of table. Using long wooden matches, ignite chicken breast. When flame goes out and liquor has burned off, you are ready to serve. Serves 2
    great to serve with egg noodles with the sauce drizzled over and buttered carrots.
