  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 cup thinly sliced yellow bell pepper
  • ½ cup thinly sliced shallots (about 1 large)
  • 1½ teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Combine ½ teaspoon salt, fennel seeds, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, garlic powder, and oregano.
