CHICKEN BREAST IN ORANGE JUICE



Yesterday evening I had my Yoga class so I had to cook something quick and easy. This is a different way to cook chicken breast, the taste is very delicate and it smells great!

Ingredients for 4 people:

4 med. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
30 g plain flour
30 g butter
1/2 glass white wine (optional- I don't use it because I cook for the children)
2 oranges
salt and pepper


Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Place boneless chicken breasts between two pieces of baking paper or plastic wrap, or in a resealable plastic bag. Starting in the center and working out to the edges, pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet until the chicken is even in thickness.

Cover with flour. 

Cook it in the butter turning it so that it cooks brown on both sides. Now, if you are using it, stir in the white wine. Grate the outside of one orange and squeeze both of them. Stir in the orange juice in the pan. After a while turn the chicken, then add the orange zest, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Place the chicken in the dish, spoon the sauce over it and decorate with some orange slices.
