Chicken with Orange Marmalade

A few months back I went to Baltimore to watch my Aunt's kids while whe went to the Canyon Ranch with her hubby down in Florida.  It is basically a healthy based resort, offering lots of healthy food, and lots of exercise based activities from what I can gather.  It sounds awesome!  In any case, she brought me home a cookbook from there, which is filled with lots of yummy recipes, this one included.  It is so simple, but so good, and good for you :)  The description of the dish says it is a favorite of their guests, so it had to be good!  We did as it suggested and served it with Cranberry Orzo.

1/4 c. orange marmalade
2 tsp. lemon juice
four 4 oz. boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Stir together orange marmalade and lemon juice in small bowl. Set aside.

Season chicken breasts with the salt and pepper.

Heat olive oil in large saute pan over medium-high heat.  Sear chicken for 1 mintue on each side.

Transfer chicken to a baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes or until internal temp reads 165 degrees.

Serve with 1 Tbsp. of orange marmalade mixture.
