I love a recipe that can put dinner on the table quickly, and not sacrifice flavor. This sweet and saucy dish does just that with ingredients you probably already have on hand! —Kallee Krong-Mccreery, Escondido, California

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

For glaze, whisk together first four ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl; stir in marmalade. Microwave, covered, on high until thickened, 2-1/2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Pound chicken breasts to 1/2-in. thickness; sprinkle with garlic salt. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook chicken until a thermometer reads 165°, 5-6 minutes per side. Top with glaze. Yield: 2 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Flattening the chicken before it cooks helps it cook quickly and evenly.
  • When flattening the chicken, cover the meat with plastic wrap and use the flat side of a meat mallet. If you don’t have a meat mallet, use a rolling pin.
  • You don’t have to go crazy with stirring the sauce while it cooks in the microwave. We stirred it twice and got a nice, thick glaze.
  • Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
