Marmalade Chicken

Yields: 4 servings

  • 1 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon(s) red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) orange marmalade
  • 1 teaspoon(s) Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1 pound(s) chicken tenders (see Note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper
  • 6 teaspoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 large shallots, minced (green onions)
  • 1 teaspoon(s) freshly grated orange zest (optional)
  • Directions

    1. Whisk broth, vinegar, marmalade, mustard and cornstarch in a medium bowl.
    2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 4 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
    3. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and shallots to the pan and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, about 30 seconds. Whisk the broth mixture and add it to the pan. Bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; cook until the sauce is slightly reduced and thickened, 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Add the chicken; return to a simmer. Cook, turning once, until the chicken is heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in orange zest.

    Tips & Techniques

    Chicken tenders are the virtually fat-free strips of rib meat typically found attached to the underside of chicken breasts. They can also be purchased separately. Four 1-ounce tenders will yield a 3-ounce cooked portion. Tenders are perfect for quick stir-fries, chicken satay or kid-friendly breaded “chicken fingers.”
