If you like the saltiness of soy sauce and the sweetness of apricot preserve...this is the one for you. I buy chicken cutlets which are just boneless chicken breasts sliced in half length wise. If you can't find cutlets, just slice the boneless breasts and place plastic wrap on top of each piece and pound them thin to about 1/2 inch thick. They cook VERY fast so keep your eye on them.
4 skinless chicken cutlets
3 tbl olive oil
1 garlic clove minced
1 shallot minced
1 lb broccoli florets small pieces
1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
3 tbl apricot preserve
1-1/2 tbl low sodium soy sauce
2 tbl fresh lime juice
1 tsp red pepper flake (optional)
Italian parsley for garnish
In a large sauce pan, heat water to boil and add broccoli with a tsp salt. Blanch for about 5 minutes, drain and place on platter and keep warm. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tbl olive oil in a saute pan and add chicken. Saute about 3 minutes a side and transfer to the broccoli platter and keep warm. To the same saute pan add remaining tbl olive oil, garlic, red pepper flake and shallot. Quickly saute about 1 minute. Add chicken broth, apricot preserve and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Cook one minute. Remove from heat and add lime juice. Spoon sauce over chicken and broccoli and garnish with parsley.
