I adapted this recipe of R. Reisman to make it with chicken breasts - I have also made it with chicken thighs - and both ways are really really good! You can use hot salsa for extra spice.
- 6 small chicken breasts, cut in small pieces
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 cup salsa
- 1⁄3 cup honey
- 3 tablespoons thawed orange juice concentrate
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
- parsley, as garnish
- Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Dust chicken breasts with flour. In a large nonstick frying pan sprayed with cooking spray, heat oil over medium-high heat; in batches, cook chicken until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes per batch. Transfer to a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
- In a bowl, stir together salsa, honey, orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, cornstarch, mustard, garlic, and ginger; pour over chicken.
- Bake, uncovered, in centre of oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Garnish with parsley.
Loved the dish--doubled the sauce(always do) made as directed and it was wonderful--made a second time and threw in a couple handfulls of tri colored bell pepper that I had cut up for a stir fry--nice twist--goes in the family approved repeat file--Thanks Redsie--
I'll decrease the amount of honey next time, but overall it tasted good!
Delicious and makes a lot. I made the whole recipe and then froze in meal-size portions with the Foodsaver vacuum machine. Next time I may try cooking it from beginning to end in a large electric fry pan to eliminate the two-step process. Will definitelyy make again. Thanks, Redsie!
