Orange-Chipotle Chicken

Orange-Chipotle Chicken

This is a really easy and tasty recipe with a sweet, tangy, slightly smokey flavor that comes from the chipotle jam used for the the glaze. I found this recipe at LaaLoosh.com, a blog that specializes in Weight Watcher recipes. One fourth of this recipe is 4 points+ for those following WW, but don’t let the fact that this recipe is Weight Watchers compatible scare you away from trying this. It is so flavorful that you’ll never believe its diet food!

Ingredients
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
Juice from one large orange (about 1/3 C.) If you don’t have a fresh orange laying around you can substitute bottled orange juice
3 T. Chipotle Pepper Jam (I think you could also substitute Asian Zing Sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 t. salt

1. Spray a large, non-stick pan with Pam cooking spray and place over medium-high heat.
2. Add chicken to the skillet along with the salt and orange juice. Saute until the chicken is cooked through and begins to brown. The orange juice will evaporate in the process.

3. Turn the heat down to low and stir in the garlic and chipotle pepper jam. Cook until the sauce is heated through and evenly coats the chicken.
