From a Southern Living recipe booklet with some minor tweaking from my own experience preparing this dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If needed, lightly pound thick portions of chicken so breast has a uniform thickness.
  2. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt, curry powder, and red pepper. Saute in hot oil in large skillet over medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side.
  3. Add orange juice and brown sugar. Cook 4 minutes over medium-high heat or until liquid is slightly reduced. Remove from heat. Remove chicken from skillet.
  4. Add butter to orange juice mixture, whisking until smooth. Drizzle over chicken and serve immediately.

What a delicious was on the sweet side but did have a touch of sour with the oj...loved the slight heat of the curry...but what I enjoyed the most was the easy quick preparation of the dish...I served it with some baked sweet potatoes and peas...I used chicken tenderloins and cut the recipe down to 2 servings...Made for Spring 2014 PAC...=)

I'm beginning to think I should have grown up in the South, 'cause as unusual as this was for me to make, it IS really delicious! Loved the combo of brown sugar & OJ! I'll be making this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
