Rosemary-Orange Chicken

Fresh orange juice and rosemary make the perfect pan sauce for lean chicken breasts.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (1-1 1/4 pounds total), trimmed
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon white-wine vinegar

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear until well browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken to a plate and tent with foil.

Step 2

Reduce heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to the pan. Add shallots and garlic. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add orange juice and broth; bring to a simmer. Cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.

Step 3

Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan; reduce heat to low. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a warmed platter. Stir butter, rosemary and vinegar into the sauce. Season with salt and pepper and spoon over the chicken.
