Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
2 Whole chicken breasts, skinned, boned and halved
1/4 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Oil
1/2 cup Orange juice
2 tablespoons Water
2 teaspoons Balsamic vinegar
2 Green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Coarsely chopped, natural American pistachios
Pound chicken breasts to 1/2-inch thickness. Season with pepper. Sauté in oil 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Add orange juice, water and balsamic vinegar and simmer covered for 10 minutes. Remove chicken to a platter and keep warm.
Add green onions and pistachios to pan and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. Pour the sauce over chicken and serve.
