Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts or any combination of light and dark meat

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

2 to 3 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves chopped

1/3 cup orange marmalade

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup chicken stock

2 scallions, whites and greens, finely chopped

4 cups baby arugula

Directions

  1. In a large pan, heat the extra-virgin olive oil over medium-high to high heat.
  2. Season the chicken liberally with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. When the oil is hot and ripples, add the chicken and brown for 5 minutes, then turn and sprinkle with rosemary. Cook until the chicken is tender and cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the marmalade, vinegar and stock and pour over the chicken. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and becomes a thin glaze. Add the scallions during the last minute of cooking time. Arrange on a serving platter and serve topped with arugula greens.
