Reduce heat to medium-low; turn chicken breasts over and cook until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes. Transfer chicken to heated platter and keep warm in oven. Pour off all but 1 tb fat from frypan. Add shallots and cook over medium-low heat for 3 minutes or until translucent, scraping up any browned bits. Add vinegar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes or until reduced to a glaze, stirring constantly. Add broth and boil until reduced to 1/2 cup, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove sauce from heat and whisk in remaining 1 tb butter and marjoram. Whisk in any juices from chicken. Spoon sauce over chicken and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
