Macadamia Chicken With Orange Frangelico Sauce

Recipe by KelBel

A wonderful fragrant chicken. This is a recreation of a meal that I had at a restaurant.

Very good I did make a couple of changes. I did add milk to the egg, used boneless thighs as for the chicken that was all the changes. For the sauce I skipped the orange juice and broth and found them not missed at all. The sauce did absorb into the coating on the cooked chicken. The mandarin oranges were lovely with the chicken helped cut on the fat from the cooking and nuts. Thanks!
