CHICKEN VERONIQUE

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
4 tsp butter
2/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
2 tbsp orange marmalade
3/4 tsp dried tarragon
2 tsp all-purpose flour
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
1 1/2 cups green grapes, halved

Sprinkle the salt and nutmeg over the chicken breast halves. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Melt butter in skillet and add the chicken pieces. Cook chicken 3 to 5 minutes per side until lightly browned. In a small bowl, combine the wine or chicken broth, marmalade and tarragon. Add the mixture to the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 7 to 11 minutes until the chicken juices run clear. Remove the chicken and keep it warm. Combine the flour and half-and-half until smooth. Slowly stir the cream mixture into the skillet. Bring mixture to a boil and cook for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the grapes and heat through. Serve sauce over the chicken.
