Chicken with Honey-Orange Sauce

Chicken with Honey-Orange Sauce

This tangy dish impresses but is super easy to prepare. Perfect with Basmati or Jasmine rice.

Ingredients

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Salt & pepper to taste

1/4 cup local honey

3 tablespoons pure orange juice (with pulp is fine)

1 teaspoon orange zest

1 clove garlic, minced

1 scallion, sliced with green tops reserved

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Combine honey, orange juice, orange zest, minced garlic and red pepper flakes in a small bowl; set aside.

Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet; add olive oil. Stir in scallion slices, cook 1 minute. Add chicken and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Add honey mixture to the pan, scraping up any brown bits and turning chicken to coat until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes.

Remove chicken to a platter and spoon sauce over top. Garnish with scallion tops and serve.
