Chicken in Strawberry and Red wine Sauce

Recently I have started using wine in my recipes. Though I was a bit worried about the taste , but it has not let me down yet :)

Ingredients :

1. Chicken- 2 medium boneless pieces
2. Orange juice- 2 tbs
3. Lemon juice- 1 tbs
4. Salt to taste
5. Black pepper powder- 1 tsp
6. Bhuna garam masala- 1/4 tsp
7. Potato (boiled)- 2
8. Olive oil
9. Worcestershire sauce- 1/2 tsp
10. Broccoli (boiled)- 1 cup
11. Milk- 1/4 cup
12. Cheese- 1 tbs

For the Sauce :

1. Mushroom- 1/2 cup
2. Red wine- 1/2 cup
3. Chicken stock- 3 tbs
4. Strawberry sauce- 1 tbs

Procedure :

Mix the lemon juice , orange juice , salt , pepper , garam masala and one tsp oil in a large bowl. Marinate the chicken pieces in this. Make some small cuts in the chicken pieces so that they absorb more and more flavors. Keep them in refrigerator for around 3 hours. 

Now heat 1 tbs olive oil in a flat surfaced non stick pan. When the oil is a little smoky , add the chicken pieces to it. Fry them on low heat until they turn brown from all the sides. Keep brushing the chicken pieces with the marinade time to time (this will provide moisture to the pieces). When they are done , remove them and keep aside.
Now mash the boiled potatoes and 2 to 3 broccoli together and add them to the pan. Let them soak the marinade a little and sprinkle a little salt and pepper. After 2 minutes of cooking , add the cheese , Worcestershire sauce and milk to it. Let the cheese get mixed well. When the milk gets dried up a little , remove the potato mixture from the pan.

To make the sauce , first add 1 tbs oil in the pan and add finely chopped mushrooms to it. Fry them for a while until the mushroom leaves water. Next add the remaining chopped broccoli , red wine , chicken stock , a little salt for seasoning. Cook it until the sauce reduces to almost half. Add the strawberry sauce and mix well. Turn off the gas. 

Serve the chicken on the bed of the potato mixture with the sauce on top of it.
