Mandarin Orange Chicken
40 mins (prep 5, cooking 35)
10 ingredients
4 servings
Roasted chicken breast halves basted with orange juice and wine, and cooked with mandarin segments and green seedless grapes. Just y-u-m-m-y for those who love citrus flavourings. I've only made this once, but I intend to experiment by varying the citrus flavourings: by substituting some or all of the orange juice for lemon or lime juice, or a blending of several citrus juices. And knowing how well rum blends with orange juice, I have considered using rum next time in place of the wine. That would make it even more of a dinner party dish! Adapted from a truly terrific book (when it comes to recipe books, I rate as 'terrific' a book in which LOTS of the recipes appeal to me, AFTER I’ve purchased the book, not just one or two) Rodale's "Terrific Chicken: 100 Great Meals in Minutes". Not all one hundred appeal to me but I've so far found several that I’m really glad to have found, and that I’ll certainly be making again, and there are several others that I look forward to making. This recipe was from a section called 'Weekend Fare'. I do hope that other citrus lovers enjoy this recipe.
