Caryn's Chicken

Rated as 3.71 out of 5 Stars

"This is a scrumptious low-fat recipe that I get asked to cook again and again! I am Australian so the recipe hails from here, but the only difference is you call a skillet what we call a frypan! If desired, serve Caryn's Chicken with a crisp green salad."

  1. Hit the chicken fillets with a tenderizing mallet until they are slightly thinned out.
  2. Put the orange juice, green onions and black pepper into a skillet over medium heat. Don't cook over high heat, or the juice will burn and go bitter.
  3. Poach the chicken in the juice mixture until it is firm and the juices run clear. This usually takes about 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filets. Place the chicken on a serving plate and pour some of the juice mixture on top. Serve.

No stars is more appropriate. This recipe is horrible. I followed the recipe exactly.

I thought it was horrible and very unappetizing to look at, the chicken was white, sauce was thin. Will not make again

I'm surprised that there are ANY negative reviews of this tasty recipe! Even if it didn't tempt your tastebuds (and it did mine! It was yummy!) it deserves 5 stars for its simplicity and the fac...
