  1. Coat chicken with flour.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook chicken with garlic, ginger, and bay leaves until chicken is browned, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Mix wine, vinegar, and honey together in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until sauce is reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add orange juice, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper and continue cooking until sauce is reduced by 2/3, about 10 minutes. Strain reduction sauce.
  4. Pour strained reduction sauce over chicken; add pine nuts and simmer over medium heat until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note:
  • My recommendation would be to double the sauce as this recipe seems to produce too little sauce for my taste. However, this sauce is quite strong!

Made an adjustment by using skinless thighs but other followed the recipe. Lots of great bursts of flavor . Fixed some flat bread to soak up the extra sauce
