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

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apricot preserves or fruit spread
  • 4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Preparation

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and sauté for 3 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pan. Reduce heat; carefully stir in broth mixture. Return chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes or until done, turning to coat.
