Chicken with Honey-Orange Sauce

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.

Ingredients

2 Uncle Matt’s Organic navel oranges
2 tablespoons all-purpose organic flour
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed and tenders removed
1 cup reduced-sodium organic chicken broth
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup golden organic raisins
2 tablespoons honey
1 3-inch cinnamon stick
1/2 cup slivered organic almonds, toasted

Preparation

  1. Zest and juice one orange. Remove the skin and white pith from the other orange, then halve and slice. Reserve zest and juice separately from the orange slices.
  2. Combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess. Transfer the remaining flour to a small bowl, add broth and whisk to combine.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add wine to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Add the flour-broth mixture, the reserved orange zest and juice, raisins, honey, cinnamon stick and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan and cook, turning the chicken once or twice, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 165°F and the sauce has thickened, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Discard the cinnamon stick. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and garnish with the reserved orange slices and almonds.

For months I have really liked your orange juice. This weekend I bought your blueberries for the first time, and I am hooked. They were the best berries I have had in a long time! — Mike, Lexington, KY
