Chicken L’Orange

A few months ago my children asked me if I could make Chicken L'Orange for dinner. I know that L'orange is usually Duck, but I'm an adventurous type so why not. Tonight was Chicken L'Orange night and quite frankly, I can't believe how simple it was.
Oh and by the way, they all loved it!


Chicken L'Orange
Ingredients:
4 Bone In Split Chicken Breasts
1 12 oz can Orange juice Concentrate
¼ Cup Honey
3-4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Zest of 1 Orange


Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 375°


In a small saute´ pan, thaw OJ Concentrate over medium heat. Whisk in honey, ¼ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper, reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, set aside.


In a large skillet heat Olive Oil over high heat, Salt and Pepper chicken Breast and place in oil skin down. I like to place a heavy pan (Cast Iron if you have one) on top of the chicken to aid in the crisping of the skin. Cook 4-5 minutes on skin side, remove to baking dish skin side up.


Brush liberally with orange glaze and zest ora…
