4 teaspoons pine nuts, toasted and chopped
1 pound skinless chicken breast, boned and trimmed
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, for dusting chicken
Canola Oil Spray
1/4 cup dark rum
1/4 cup minced shallots, or red onion
1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers
2 tablespoons chopped capers
2 tablespoons chopped olives
2 tablespoons chopped raisins
3/4 cup 100% orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup low-sodium chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, plus more to taste
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
1. Toast pine nuts in a 350 degree oven for 3-4 minutes until golden. Remove, cool and chop.
2. With a meat mallet, pound chicken breasts to 1/2-inch thick and season with salt and pepper.
3. Dust both sides in flour, and pat so flour stays on.

6. Deglaze pan with orange juice. Add chicken stock and lemon juice and reduce heat slightly when ingredients come to a boil.

8. Stir in salt, pepper and parsley.
9. Top each serving with 1 teaspoon of chopped toasted pine nuts.
