Elizabethan Chicken

Chicken is surprisingly delicious when combined with fruit! This recipe makes a creamy sauce that is flavored with nutmeg instead of the traditional mace. The recipe calls for fresh ground nutmeg but I suppose you could use nutmeg from your spice shelf….just keep in mind… there is a BIG difference between the two! Once I discovered this I purchased a nutmeg grinder…and will never use nutmeg from a spice rack again….. I found this recipe in Tom Bridge’s “What’s Cooking…. Chicken” cookbook. You can add curry powder to the sauce (in step #5) and/or a little dry white wine or vermouth to the sauce (in step #3) for more flavors.
