Orange-Balsamic Glazed Chicken


Ingredients:
4-6 large pieces of boneless and skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2-3 Tbs balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs soy sauce (or to taste)
salt and black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp dried thyme
red chili flakes to taste
1 bunch of scallions sliced (save some for garnish)


Directions:

Mix  balsamic vinegar, orange marmalade and soy sauce together and set aside.  Salt pepper and sprinkle each chicken breast with thyme.



Add 2-3 Tbs of canola oil in large skillet and get heat on high.  Add seasoned chicken into skillet and brown both sides well.  If you have a lot of oil in pan, drain most of the oil out now.  Then add orange-balsamic sauce, red chili flakes and white parts of scallions.  Cook in glaze for 10-15 minutes on high until the glaze thickens. Flip chicken a few times to make sure glaze gets well absorbed on both sides.  Top with sliced green parts of scallions and serve.  Enjoy with rice, steamed vegetables or over a salad.  Enjoy.

  8. Hi Curry & Comfort,

    Per your instructions, "If you have a lot of oil in pan, drain most of the oil out now. Then add orange-balsamic sauce, red chili flakes and white parts of scallions."

    Once the oil is drained out of the pan, do you add the chicken back in first and then the orange-balsamic sauce?

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Candice,

      I actually just tilted the pan and spoon out the extra oil. I never took the chicken out of the pan. Sorry that may have been confusing. I may have added too much oil when I browned the chicken so that's why I discarded the extra oil. If you use less oil when you start to brown the chicken, then you can avoid this step. Hope you enjoy the recipe. :)

  15. I made this last night and it was a huge hit! I didn't have enough orange marmalade so I used half marmalade and half apricot jam. It was absolutely delicious!

    1. So glad you liked it. :) Yes, I bet apricot jam worked wonderfully too. I think even peach jam would work as well. :) It always makes me happy to hear feedback. Thank you. ~ Ramona/Curry and Comfort
