Chicken with Honey-Orange Sauce

March/April 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4 (75 votes)

Here we combine raisins, cinnamon, honey and almonds with orange juice, zest, wine and broth to make a rich, savory pan sauce for chicken. There's plenty of the gorgeous sauce, so be sure to serve whole-wheat egg noodles, couscous or rice on the side.

This was absolutely delicious and so easy to cook! I don't normally like wine based sauces but this one was so yummy. The almonds are key and so are the raisins. I also added dried cherries and they blended very nicely! Definitely one I'll be cooking again!

I thought this tasted really, really good, but it took me like an hour to make. It may have taken longer for me because I am not super savvy in the kitchen, but still, it took longer than it was listed (35 minutes).

I made this tonight, and it is one of the BEST chicken recipe finds!
I used salt substiture, and boneless chicken thighs. This will be on my list of regulars! Hubby and I love the orange, honey sauce and the chicken was so tender. Cooking times listed in the recipe were right on target. We served it with fresh string beans and baked sweet potato.

Used Steph's version and added a little soy sause, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes, also cheated and added about two table spoons clear/fied butter and a drizzle of EVOO, man take about good...PS. You might also swap the white for one cup of red, I used a cheap sarrah
