A diabetes-friendly dish can still be delicious

Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast halves

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 large shallot, minced

2/3 cup low-sodium, low-fat chicken broth

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/8 teaspoon marjoram

1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes, rehydrated in a small bowl of water

1. Cut each chicken breast half into 6 equal parts. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

2. Sauté chicken in oil over moderate heat, turning, until the chicken is just opaque throughout, 4-5 minutes.

3. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon. Add shallot to the skillet and sauté, stirring until softened, about 1 minute. Add broth, wine (much of the alcohol will evaporate, leaving only the flavor), marjoram and tomatoes.

4. Bring to a boil over moderate heat and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

5. Return the chicken to the skillet. Simmer, gently spooning the sauce over the chicken, until heated through. Simmer until sauce is reduced by half.
