Hands-on time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Yields: Serves 4 (serving size: 1 chicken cutlet)


4 (5- to 6-oz.) chicken cutlets

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon salted butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup orange marmalade

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon lemon zest, plus 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

How to Make It

Preheat broiler. Sprinkle both sides of cutlets with salt and pepper. Melt butter with oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high. Cook cutlets in butter mixture until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Tilt pan; add marmalade and next 3 ingredients to drippings, and stir until combined. Spoon sauce over cutlets.

Broil 8 inches from heat until chicken is glazed and cooked through, about 6 minutes, turning cutlets every minute and basting with pan sauce. Spoon sauce over chicken.
