What's in it


2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 6 fillets
2 large shallots, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup fat free chicken broth
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp orange zest
Salt and pepper to taste

How to cook it


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and spray a large baking dish with nonfat cooking spray.
  • Season chicken generously with salt and pepper, and place in baking dish.
  • In a small sauce pan, combine remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and let simmer until sauce reduces down a bit, about 15 minutes.
  • Pour sauce over chicken and cover baking dish with foil. Poke a few holes in the foil ;to allow for steam to escape.
  • Place in oven and cook until chickens cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove foil and place back in oven for another 10-12 minutes to brown the top of the chicken. Let cool about 5 minutes before serving.
