INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 large shallots, minced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

PREPARATION

  • Whisk broth, vinegar, marmalade, mustard and cornstarch in a medium bowl.
  • Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 4 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  • Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and shallots to the pan and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, about 30 seconds. Whisk the broth mixture and add it to the pan. Bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer; cook until the sauce is slightly reduced and thickened, 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Add the chicken; return to a simmer. Cook, turning once, until the chicken is heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in orange zest.
