    Annacia's Note:

    This recipe originates in Valencia, a region well-known for its citrus. Chicken breasts are first browned in oil, then sauteed in a sauce with intense citrus flavors. This is a simple recipe with lots of fresh taste. From: Spanish Food

      Great chicken!!! Made this for dinner for DD, DS and I. I used 4 thin chicken cutlets, left out the carrots and sugar, as we aren't fans of sweet meat dishes. I used 3 Moro oranges, blood oranges that are less sweet and a shallot (to impart some garlic into the recipe) and then followed it as written, using the option not to puree. Both kids still prefer a chicken piccata dish but had no problem devouring this chicken!! I served it with my Fettuccine All'alfredo, green beans and garlic bread for a wonderful meal!! Next time I would lightly coat them in seasoned flour and use 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil to add a bit more flavor. But we really enjoyed the chicken and recomment that you don't let one reviewer stop you from trying this great chicken dish!!! Made for Photo Tag.

      I just made the recipe as-is and loved it, as did the family. The taste was lightly sweet, not too strong.

      Not quite right. The onion and the orange compete and confuse the palette. If you agree try this...for every 2 cups of puree add to the blender 1 tsp of minced garlic, 1 tsp of minced basil in olive oil and 1/4 tsp each of thyme and oregano ....also lose the sugar. This balances out the too sweet taste. Hope this helpful.
