Citrus Glazed Chicken


I don't make very many main dishes with fruit in them, but my two children and I love this recipe. The chicken's very tender and the sauce is absolutely wonderful.

4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

  • ½ teaspoon grated lemon peel

  • ½ teaspoon grated orange peel

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Pound the chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; dip into citrus mixture. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the chicken in oil for about 2 minutes per side. Remove chicken. In the same skillet, cook garlic, onions and ginger in butter for 1 minute. Add flour and salt; cook and stir for 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Return chicken to pan; sprinkle with parsley. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until chicken juices run clear, turning occasionally.
