Grilled Chicken With Brandy Apple Dijon Sauce

I kinda just thought this's actually a combination of a few different recipes,i like to look at recipes as a guide,just a starting point and then i let my past knowledge,experiences and taste for balance take over..anyway i'll just list the ingredients for this one because i didn't measure anything..the potatoes and asparagus were grilled along with the chicken


bacon 6 slices diced
apple juice concentrate
apple cider vinegar
grey poupon dijon mustard
mailie whole grain mustard
heavy whipping cream
fresh thyme
salt and pepper


set a sauce pan over medium heat and add bacon,cook until fat is rendered,drain bacon to paper towel leaving about a tablespoon of fat in the pan,add shallot,saute 3 to 4 min,add garlic and saute another 2 minutes,deglaze pan with brandy(about 1/4 cup)add apple juice(about a cup) and vinegar(about 1/4 cup) and reduce liquid by half,strain off liquid and add back to sauce pan,whisk both mustards(about 2 tablespoons each)to the reduction,simmer 3 to 4 minutes,slowly whisk about a half cup heavy cream to the sauce,season to taste and add fresh thyme and finely minced bacon off the your favorite meat or poultry with this..great balance of sweet to tangy!
