Raspberry-Balsamic Glazed Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
Another one from Cooking Light! I have also made this with orange marmelade and it was very good.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
4 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
1/3 cup seedless raspberry preserves
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion; saute 5 minutes.
Combine thyme and 1/4 teaspoon salt; sprinkle over chicken.
Add chicken to skillet; saute 6 minutes on each side or until done.
Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm. Reduce heat to medium-low.
Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, preserves, vinegar, and pepper, stirring constantly until the preserves melt.
Spoon raspberry sauce over chicken.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 2 tablespoons sauce)
