Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 150ml/¼ pint fresh orange juice
  • 150ml/¼ pint chicken stock
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tsp light muscovado sugar
  • knob of butter
  • orange segments and fresh rosemary sprigs to garnish
  • boiled rice and green salad to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the chicken between pieces of cling film and flatten slightly by bashing with a pan. Unwrap and sprinkle on both sides with pepper. Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat, then fry the chicken for 5 minutes, turning halfway through.

  • STEP 2

    Pour 2 tbsp vinegar over the chicken, add the orange juice and stock and sprinkle with the rosemary and salt. Bring to the boil, lower the heat and bubble gently for 5 minutes until tender, spooning with the sauce frequently and turning chicken halfway through.

  • STEP 3

    Stir in the sugar, butter and rest of the vinegar, then sizzle for a few minutes until reduced and glossy.

  • STEP 4

    Put the chicken in a serving dish, spoon the sauce over and garnish with orange and rosemary. Serve with rice and a crisp green salad.
