If you can't find dried cherries, use regular dried cranberries.
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/3 cup Marsala
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 teaspoon butter
1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
How to Make It
Combine cherries and Marsala in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at high for 45 seconds, and set aside.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover and keep warm.
Add butter to pan, and cook until butter melts. Add shallots and thyme; sauté 1 minute or until tender. Stir in broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add cherry mixture, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer 2 minutes or until sauce is slightly thick. Serve chicken with sauce.
