Step by Step Method

Step 1

Trim tops and bottoms of oranges. Cut off peel, removing as much of the bitter white pith as possible. Working over a bowl, cut in between membranes to release orange segments. Squeeze juice out of membrane and set aside. In a large, resealable plastic bag, combine flour, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Add chicken breasts and shake to coat; shake off excess flour.

Step 2

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken, skinned side down, and cook for 4 minutes. Turn and cook until chicken is just firm to the touch, about 4 minutes longer. Transfer chicken breasts to a plate. Add onion and wine to pan and cook, stirring, until wine is evaporated. Add broth and reserved juice and boil, stirring occasionally, until sauce is reduced by half and onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in mustard and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. pepper.

Step 3

Return chicken to skillet and cook, turning to coat, for 1 minute. Transfer to plates. Add reserved orange segments to sauce, then spoon sauce over chicken. Sprinkle with parsley or green onion.

Subtle fresh orange flavour, a little on the tart side, delicious ! Easy to put together, one to be made often I've had this one printed out for several weeks and finally made it for supper last night, mmm should have made in sooner, really luscious ! Would be a lovely company entree.

This family loves chicken, has to be said this great tasting orange chicken is to love! It was delicious, looked so appealing on a white serving platter. Enjoyed. Definitely a company quality meal. Looking forward to serving it to family and friends.

This is a light, refreshing dish that comes together in a short time and looks as good as it tastes. My oranges weren't as sweet as I expected them to be and sectioning them took a while, but I'd make it again in a minute for family or to entertain. We used meaty chicken tenders and served them over rice with a sprinkle of green onions and a side dish of asparagus.
