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.

Big, bold and unique flavors. The orange flavor from the zest, juice and fresh slices of navel orange which I cut into fairly small bites, lend flavor complexity through layering to this dish. The toasted almond slivers are also an integral ingrediant. I used artisanal chestnut honey from Corsica that has a strong and unusually bitter flavor that works perfectly here. I pounded the chicken to tenderize it, in between wax paper sheets and adjusted cooking time accordingly. My husband said that he really liked it but that he thought that he would have like for it to be spicy. We had couscous with this dish because there really is lots of delicious sauce. Which is another reason that I love this dish.

I love when someone calls

I love when someone calls something artisanal even though people had little or nothing to so with its production. Artisanal honey?? The bees do all the work.


My husband and I REALLY like this recipe. It's a little putsy but not too much.
