Fruited Balsamic Chicken

This recipe works well with any Jam you prefer.  I made it with Black Raspberry, but I am looking forward to making it with the plum jam we made this weekend.  Thank You to Angie, Erica and Judy for the jam making fun.

  2 Tsp Vegetable Oil                                                                1/2 Tsp Pepper
  1 Small Spring Onion, Minced                                                 4 Medium Chicken Breast Halves,
  1 Clove Garlic, Minced                                                              -Boneless, Skinless
  1 Tsp Dried Thyme                                                                1/3 Cup Raspberry Jam
  1/2 Tsp Salt                                                                            2 Tbl Balsamic Vinegar

Lay chicken on a cutting board.  Mix salt, pepper and thyme together and sprinkle half the mixture over the chicken.

Heat oil in a non stick skillet until hot.  Add onion and garlic, saute for 1 minute.  Place chicken on top of onion/garlic mixture, spice side down.  Cook about 6 minutes.  While cooking, sprinkle remaining thyme mixture over chicken.  Turn chicken and cook until done (165 degrees)

Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.  Reduce heat to medium low.  Add Jam and vinegar to the skillet and stir until the jam melts.  Spoon over chicken.
