1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon orange marmalade
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless, chicken breast halves
1 tablespoon Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon olive oil
Cooking spray
1 teaspoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


Combine first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Dredge chicken in breadcrumbs.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or just until lightly browned on both sides. Add broth mixture; cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken is done. Sprinkle with parsley.
