DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lightly season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, brown chicken breasts on both sides.
  • Add onions and mushrooms.
  • Cook, stirring, until onions soften.
  • Transfer mixture to a shallow casserole dish and bake, uncovered for 15 minutes.
  • In a small sauce pan, warm the orange liquer over low heat (lukewarm, not hot).
  • Take the casserole out of the oven.
  • Place the casserole on the kitchen counter and invite your guests to watch the show.
  • Pour the liqueur over the chicken and vegetables and ignite it.
  • When the flames die out, add the wine and return the casserole to the oven for another 15.
  • minutes or until the chicken breasts are no longer pink inside.
  • Remove the casserole from the oven.
  • Arrange the chicken and vegetables on a warm platter and keep hot.
  • Reserve pan juices in the pan.
  • Mix butter and flour to make a paste.
  • Stir paste into the pan juices, add cream and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes until thickened.
  • Garnish the serving platter with orange swirls and parsley, and serve with wild rice and vegetables.
  • Note: As with all of my recipes, I recommend using quality ingredients. In this dish, for example, use Grand Marnier, not some substitute. Also use a drinkable wine. Finally Wondra flour always makes for a perfect sauce.
