APRICOT BALSAMIC CHICKEN

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, skinless & boneless
  • 1/3 cup all-fruit or reduced-sugar apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle thyme and 1/4 teaspoon salt over chicken. Add chicken to pan; sauté 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, jam, vinegar, and pepper to pan, stirring constantly until the jam melts. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve immediately.

TIPS:

  • I always pound out my chicken breasts a little bit to thin them out and even out their thickness. They cook up quicker and more evenly that way.
  • I love the sauce for this chicken, but the flavor might be overwhelming for kids. Serve a dish of the sauce on the side for the little ones- then they can dunk their chicken into the sauce if they wish.
