Orange Marmalade Chicken Recipe:
Yields: 2 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
4 teaspoons firmly-packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons low-sugar orange marmalade*
Salt and coarsely-ground
pepper to taste
2 chicken breasts halves (3-ounce each), boneless and skinless**
* I like to use the Smucker's
brand of marmalade.
**The U.S. Department
of Agriculture, as well as food agencies in the United Kingdom and elsewhere,
advises against washing poultry. Rinsing chicken will not remove or kill much
bacteria, and the splashing of water around the sink can spread the bacteria
found in raw chicken. Cooking poultry to 165 degrees Fahrenheit effectively
destroys the most common culprits behind food-borne illness.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil; spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small non-stick frying pan over low heat, add olive oil and heat
until hot. Add garlic and cook 2 to 3 minutes until garlic begins to soften (be careful
not to let garlic brown). Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar, orange marmalade,
salt, and pepper until well blended.
Place chicken breasts halves in prepared baking pan; spread
garlic mixture evenly over chicken.
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until a
meat thermometer registers an
internal temperature of 165 degrees F. (juices will run clear when cut with the tip of a knife).
Remove from oven and transfer onto a serving plate.
