  • 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.

  • 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.

Tasty! I made this tonight for dinner & it was fabulous! I didn't need to tweak anything at all - perfect as written. HOWEVER after analyzing the recipe nutritional information on SEVERAL other analyzers the calories worked out to 300-ish PER SERVING not 193 as the recipe says...I suggest - if you're watching your weight - analyzing ALL the recipies from this (or any) site. Pros: SO easy & delicious! Cons: CALORIE COUNT/NUTRITIONAL INFO WAAAAYYY OFF!! Read More
