Orange Chicken

Orange Chicken is a exquisite summer favorite. You can cook this on the grill or oven top. I prefer to use freshly squeezed orange juice when making this Asian treat. An array of thin freshly sliced oranges gives this dish a burst of color. Serve with white rice.

6 chicken breast, skinless
1/2 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
3 tablespoons olive oil
orange slices for serving

1. In a medium mixing bowl add orange juice, honey, soy sauce and ginger, mix well. In am 8×8 inch dish add chicken breast and pour orange sauce on top, cover. Place in refrigerator and allow to marinate at least 4 hours.

2. On medium heat in a saute pan add oil. Carefully place chicken, sprinkle sesame seeds and allow to cook until no longer pink. Approximately 8-10 minutes on each side. Serve with orange slices.

Yields: 3-4 servings
