Blood Orange Chicken

Christie Biggers

"I am so in love with blood oranges! And I set out to create a dish that highlighted their deep citrus flavor and absolutely beautiful coloring! However, this dish can be made with navel oranges as well, if blood oranges are out of season. Pairs really well with some fresh steamed vegetables for a healthy dinner!"

  1. Place chicken breasts into a baking dish. Squeeze juice of 2 blood oranges over chicken. Marinate from 12 to 24 hours; drain and discard used marinade.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season each chicken breast with salt and black pepper. Brown chicken in hot oil on both sides, about 4 minutes per side; transfer to a plate and cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Melt butter in a clean skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in melted butter until onion is translucent and garlic has begun to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in juice of 3 blood oranges, chicken stock, white wine, and parsley. Bring mixture to a boil. Return chicken breasts to skillet, reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 7 minutes per side.
  4. Place chicken to serving plates, leaving pan juices; dissolve honey in the pan juices and simmer sauce until thickened, about 2 minutes. Spoon sauce over chicken breasts to serve.

This is an all year recipe in my house but it is especially yummy this time of year when blood oranges are in season!

I modified this to substitute Elderflower syrup instead of the honey because I was excited to try it and thought it would be interesting with the orange juice, which it was! Very tasty!! Thank y...

This was a decent meal. We liked it but we didn't love it. The only thing I did differently was omit the honey because my husband hates sweet flavors with meat, and I added a bit of cornstarch ...
