Serves four

This delicious dish is quick, easy and requires only a few basic ingredients. Best of all, there are only 6 grams of fat per serving. Chef Conlan uses a special free-range chicken raised near Lake Austin that has only 3 grams fat per serving.


  • For Chicken:
  • Four 4-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onions
  • For Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1/4 cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup all-fruit peach preserves
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


FOR CHICKEN: Season the breasts with salt and pepper; then pan roast in a heavy, covered skillet with the oil, using spray as needed. After 3-4 minutes, turn the chicken and cook for 2 minutes. Add the onion and cook for 2 more minutes. Set the chicken aside, covered.

FOR SAUCE: Flambé the bourbon in the skillet. Deglaze with the stock, and add the remaining ingredients. Simmer to a sauce-like consistency. Correct the seasoning and add any accumulated chicken juices. Pour over the chicken.

NOTE: For chicken with a bourbon cream sauce, proceed as above through deglazing the pan. Add two ounces of low-fat cream cheese and two teaspoons minced tarragon.
