Here’s another super easy weeknight recipe. This comes from Cooking Light, I jotted it down from one of their 5-ingredient cookbooks, though I can’t remember which.
I love sweet and sour flavors, and I think the combination of peach preserves and balsamic vinegar is quite yummy. Other types of preserves would probably be good as well. Plum preserves come to mind.
I made these to go along with the warm cabbage salad in my last post. Very quick and easy meal to put together!
Start out by seasoning your chicken with salt and pepper. Chicken tenders aren’t exactly in my budget, so I just cut some chicken breasts into strips. MUCH cheaper and just as easy to prepare.
Now add them to your hot skillet. Very important here not to crowd the pan, otherwise they’ll end up steaming rather than actually browning.
I cooked mine in two batches, and they came out nicely browned. More color=more flavor.
Now add the peach preserves and balsamic vineger to the skillet. Cook just for 1-2 minutes, until it’s all heated through.
Add the chicken back to the skillet. Give it a stir to make sure all the pieces are coated.
Sprinkle the green onion slices over the top (or chives, in my case). Doesn’t that look pretty?? And that’s it, all done. Time to eat!
Here’s the complete recipe 🙂
