A delightful take on chicken with fresh raspberries and oranges, this recipe is special enough for company or casual dinners with the family. My husband and daughter are raspberry fanatics and say my take on this recipe is fantastic. A frequent request for anyone coming to my home for dinner.

  • Melt remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in skillet; stir in onion and cook until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in red wine vinegar, orange juice, and chicken broth; increase heat to medium-high, and bring to a boil. Stir in the cornstarch and water mixture, and cook until the sauce thickens and turns clear, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in the raspberries and orange segments; cook for 2 minutes until softened. Add the chicken breasts to the sauce, and cook to reheat. Serve chicken with sauce spooned over it.

I disagree with the previous reviewer but I think the essential part of the is recipe is to make sure you get a BIG orange and it's a really sweet one. I have made this recipe a couple times and I also marinate the chicken breasts in orange juice before cooking them to add a bit more orange flavor. Great recipe. Read More

This recipe looked good going in...it was easy enough to make went together well in the pan was pretty to look at. Now if only it had tasted better. Don't get me wrong the chicken tasted good but it was fried according to my tastes. The sauce was way too tart almost to the point of bitterness--I had to add a little sugar to make it passable. The real shocker was the oranges--something must happen to them during cooking because they were a dead ringer for grapefruit. Yech. Couldn't eat 'em. Sorry but this one needs some work. Read More

I left out the vinegar and the onion. I also used orange concentrate instead of orange juice. The chicken came out delicious and juicy. Read More

I made this for the first time for 8 people last night and it was a huge hit! I fried the chicken a bit in the pan made the sauce then transferred the chicken and the sauce to a casserole dish and baked it in the oven for 45 minutes. It was a huge hit! Read More

This wasn't exactly what I expected when I made it. My family didn't love it. It wasn't bad at all just not something I'd be likely choose to make again. Not bad but not great. Read More

This was not a good dish. I didn't like it at all and was very disapointed in it. It was sour and weird. I won't make it again Read More

Made as written and I don't care for this recipe. I've got 3 more batches to go...with changes...because I have that much chicken to work with. I'll update with the results. (Back off the cornstarch and red wine vinegar is my first suggestion.) Read More

This is yummy! Followed the recipe just as it said (except I used frozen raspberries because I had no fresh ones) and it was delicious. Even my husband who hates chicken loved this. Chicken was moist and tender and the sauce is very very good. Definitely a keeper! Read More
