Verjus (also called verjuice), the unfermented juice of sour grapes, is an interesting substitute for vinegar or wine. It has a sharp, fruity flavor, without overt acidity (for verjus, try the Oakville Grocery, which sells 32-oz. bottles of both red and white Napa Valley Fusion Verjus for $12.75). If you can’t find it, you can use white grape juice and cider vinegar to make the sauce, though it won’t be as refined. Pancetta is unsmoked Italian bacon, usually sold in the deli department. Ask your butcher to remove the chicken breasts from the bone, keeping the skin intact (or debone them yourself). Try serving this chicken with roasted potatoes and sautéed spinach.
Cut the chicken breasts crosswise into 1-inch slices. Spoon 1 to 2 Tbs. of the sauce over each serving.
