Raspberry – Balsamic Glazed Chicken

If you don’t have raspberry preserves on hand, no worries as you can use apricot, blackberry, peach or strawberry.
Raspberry-Balsamic Glazed Chicken

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (I used dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry preserves
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion; saute 5 minutes and remove onions from the pan and set aside. Combine thyme and 1/4 teaspoon salt; sprinkle over chicken. Add chicken to skillet; saute 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm. Reduce heat to medium-low, add onions back to skillet. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, preserves, vinegar, and pepper, stirring constantly until the preserves melt. Spoon raspberry sauce over chicken.
Yield:  4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 2 tablespoons sauce)
