Raspberry-Dijon Glazed Chicken and Peas over Brown Rice


 One Year Ago:  Grilled Flank Steak



This is light, healthy and full of flavor.  I make many variations of this but this is my favorite version with apricot being a close second.  Try this with your favorite fruit preserve.

  • 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

In a small bowl, whisk together the raspberry preserves, Dijon mustard and honey.  Set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion, cooking and stirring for 3 minutes.  Stir in the chicken, cooking and stirring until brown, about 3 to 4 minutes.  Add the peas and basil, cooking and stirring for 1 minute.
