Raspberry-Balsamic Chicken with Shallots

Raspberry-Balsamic Chicken with Shallots

Tasty and flexible—what more could you want in a recipe? You could easily vary the flavors by making the dish with black cherry jam and red-wine vinegar, apricot jam and apple cider vinegar or orange marmalade and sherry vinegar.

Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 80 min.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup seedless all-fruit raspberry jam
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 4- to 5-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts, tenders removed (see Tip)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots, (2-3 large)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine jam and vinegar in a small pan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring often, until the jam is dissolved, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in salt and pepper and let cool slightly. Reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce. Place chicken breasts and the rest of the sauce in a large sealable plastic bag. Seal and shake gently to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and thyme and cook, stirring often, until the shallots begin to soften, about 1 minute. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discard marinade). Add the chicken to the pan and cook until just beginning to brown, 2 minutes on each side. Add the reserved raspberry sauce; stir to melt the jam and coat the chicken. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 6 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
