This is the another recipe in my Healthy Eating Series. I am always in search of different healthy recipes to try. It’s important for the kids to try and eat different foods because one, they tend to eat it more if it’s different, new {and exciting} and two, it teaches them to try new foods and be open to try new things.

I came across a recipe that I really like from eatingwell.com, the Marmalade Chicken. It was so easy to prepare and most importantly, it was a dish that the kids really enjoyed!

Here’s what you need:
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 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

And the simple recipe:
1. Whisk broth, vinegar, marmalade, mustard and cornstarch in a medium bowl.
2. 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.
3. 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.

I also made brown rice and greens on the side. Enjoy! I hope you try and like this recipe as much as we do!
