From an old Betty Crocker booklet. The original had the chicken cooked in the microwave but I always found it to be a bit dry - so I adjusted it to bake in the oven. I serve this over a nice brown rice and with a crusty bread.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup apple juice
- 1⁄2 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 (11 ounce) can mandarin orange segments, drained
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 350F and lightly spray a 3 quart casserole dish.
- Arrange chicken breasts in casserole dish.
- Mix brown sugar and cornstarch.
- Add apple juice, teriyaki sauce, oil and garlic to the brown sugar mixture.
- Pour this over the chicken.
- Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes, basting with sauce a few times through baking.
- Uncover and top with orange segments and green onions and continue baking an addition 5-10 minutes or until chicken reaches a temperature of 180 degrees.
I didn't see any reason to waste all that juice in the can and replace it with apple juice, so I just used it instead. Delicious chicken, and the sauce was delectable with rice. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT Witchin Kitchen.
Loved the mix of mandarin and chicken!! Yummy!! Used orange juice instead of apple and followed the rest of the recipe! Thanks! :)
Absolutely loved this chicken dish! Great combination of flavors! I served it with brown rice (pretty much a staple in my kitchen) & the sauce on the rice was GREAT! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders cooking game]
