I happened to have some chicken tenders in the freezer when I saw this recipe....and all of the other ingredients on hand too, so I made this for dinner last week. They were so good! The chicken was very tender and the glaze was very tasty. I served it with some oven roasted asparagus.

Balsamic-Glazed Chicken Tenders
Start to Finish: 25 minutes

1 small orange
2/3 cup cinnamon applesauce
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. ground cardamom or 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 lb. chicken tenders
2 tsp. vegetable oil
Fresh thyme sprigs (optional)
Finely shred peel from orange; set aside. Juice orange. In a medium saucepan combine applesauce, vinegar, cardamom, juice from the orange, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Bring to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
2. Season chicken lightly with salt and black pepper. Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken; cook until golden brown on bottom, about 4 minutes. Turn chicken and add 1/2 cup of the applesauce mixture to skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
3. To serve, top chicken with some of the applesauce mixture, orange peel and fresh thyme. Pass remaining applesauce mixture. Makes 4 servings.
