sweet tangy plum spiced chickenInspired by a magazine ( I wish I knew which one...)

1-1/4 lbs. skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
4 green onions, more for garnish, chopped
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup plum jam
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a bowl, toss the chicken thighs together with Chinese five-spice powder and salt.

In a nonstick skillet, heat extra-virgin olive oil until hot. Add chicken thighs and cook 5 minutes on each side, until browned and juices run clear. Transfer thighs to a plate; cover to keep warm.

In drippings in skillet, on medium heat, cook chopped green onions until browned, about three to four minutes.

Stir in chicken broth, plum jam and balsamic vinegar; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium and reduce down until sauce is syrupy; about four minutes. Return the chicken thighs to the skillet and coat with the sauce. Garnish with green onion.
