Orange juice forms part of this rich spicy sauce. Serve hot with couscous or rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat a non-stick frying pan. Dry fry the onion for 2-3 minutes until soft.
  2. Add the chicken and garlic and cook briskly, turning the chicken regularly to seal on all sides.
  3. Add the spices with 2-3 tbs of broth and sprinkle the flour over. Mix well, 'cooking out' the flour for 1 minute.
  4. Gradually mix in the remaining broth. Add the oregano, tomatoes, orange peel and juice.
  5. Cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes.
  6. Season to taste and serve.

This was a very easy, flavorful recipe, that required very little in the way of prep. I used a fresh orange peel and cut the chicken into chunks versus strips, but otherwise followed all directions as posted. We served with acerast's Rice Pilaf, Recipe #228832 (which was really good) and some boiled pole beans. This was a good recipe for a work night. Thanks!

Very flavorable - it was wonderful with couscous and steamed green beans. The blend of spices was heavenly and it was a quick and easy dish to prepare! I will add this to our rotation!

A really, really great recipe, & one I'll be keeping on hand, as I'm always on the lookout for new ways to fix chicken breasts! Absolutely loved the citrusy flavor of the sauce! Definitely a winner! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed during the Family Picks portion of ZWT6]
