We have a plethera of mint that grows behind our home. The scent is overwhelming when you walk down the steps into the backyard. This dish is a very quick recipe to pull together. It has a fruity flavor that is so yummy.

This is a fabulous sauce. I didn't have oranges so mixed 3/4 cup frozen orange concentrate with 3/4 cup chicken broth. A beautiful golden shiny glaze for the chicken.
