Cooking Light SEPTEMBER 2003

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup tawny port or other sweet red wine
  • 1/4 cup cranberry chutney (such as Crosse and Blackwell)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried rubbed sage

Preparation

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Dredge the chicken in breadcrumbs. Add to pan, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

Combine broth and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Add to pan; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook 10 minutes or until chicken is done.

Remove chicken from the pan. Bring broth mixture to a boil, and cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 1 minute). Spoon sauce over chicken.
