Spicy Honey-Orange Glazed Chicken, Gluten Free Dairy Free
From a class I taught:
The Recipe: Spicy Honey-Orange Glazed Chicken, Gluten Free Dairy Free
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves or 1 3/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, olive oil, or gluten & dairy free margarine
- Garnish: green onion, thinly sliced and/or fresh parsley, minced, optional
- In small bowl, combine honey with juice concentrate, orange zest, garlic, salt and red pepper flakes.
- Rinse chicken with cold water and pat dry. Season lightly with salt. In large non-stick skillet, heat margarine and oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook about 4 minutes, until seared. Turn chicken; cook another 4 minutes until just cooked through.
- Pour honey mixture over chicken and cook, turning chicken to coat as sauce begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Serve chicken breasts with honey-orange glaze spooned over the top. Sprinkle with parsley and green onion.
- Serving suggestions: Butternut squash and steamed broccoli.
