Saucy Chicken Marmalade

I should have posted this a week ago but something went wrong with the photos. I lost all of them and was only able to recover one 😦

Anyhow, let me share with you an easy chicken dish that’s akin to the usual Orange Chicken minus the flour batter that covers the chicken cutlets. The recipe is good for 4 servings and each serving has only 213 calories. This one’s good for people on a diet or those who are watching their calorie intake 😀

Here’s my version of Saucy Chicken Marmalade ~



  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. orange marmalade (I used Clara Ole Orange Marmalade)
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 kilo chicken fillets
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt/rock salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 6 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp. orange zest

Whisk broth, vinegar, marmalade, mustard and cornstarch in a bowl.

Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken fillets with salt and pepper. Heat 4 tsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Slice into cubes, transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Add the remaining 2 tsp. oil and onions to the pan and cook, stirring often. 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 and cook until the sauce is slightly reduced and thickened, 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Add the chicken cutlets and continue to simmer. Cook until the chicken is heated through. Remove from the heat and stir in orange zest.

Serve and enjoy! 🙂
