Eating well recipe, Orange marmalade and freshly grated orange zest make a deliciously tangy sauce for quick-cooking chicken tenders. Serve with brown rice.

Recipe Ingredients for Marmalade Chicken

1 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
3 tablespoons orange marmalade
2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoon cornstarch
1 1/2 pound chicken tenders, (see Note)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
7 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
5 tablespoons shallots, minced
2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

Recipe Directions for Marmalade Chicken

  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.

  4. Note: 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.?
