In my home beef is always first choice. When I introduced this recipe to my family one Friday night, the reaction was shocking. The chicken was actually finished before the prime rib. Need I say more?

- Cooking and Prep: 1 h 10 m
- Serves: 8
Roasted Shallot and Red Pepper Chutney Sauce
Make the Chicken
Place marinade ingredients in a one gallon ziplock bag. Mix well. Place chicken cutlets in bag and coat well with marinade. Place in refrigerator and marinate overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Place chicken cutlets on a baking paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30–35 minutes.
Make the Chutney Sauce
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius). Place pepper and shallot slices on a small lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15–20 minutes, turning once. Allow to cool.
Transfer the roasted red pepper and shallots to a food processor or blender. Add two cloves garlic and 1/2 cup red wine vinegar. Pulse until smoothly blended.
Transfer to a small saucepan. Add in brown sugar and tomato paste, and red pepper flakes if desired. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
To serve, either plate each cutlet with a Tbsp of chutney sauce on top, or serve it platter style with a bowl of chutney sauce in the center or passed around.
