DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a large fry pan over medium heat until hot. Add the almonds and cook, stirring around every so often, until lightly browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, heat the butter.
  • Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • Fry the chicken until golden brown all over.
  • Cover the pan, reduce the heat and cook gently for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is tender.
  • While the chicken is cooking, squeeze the juice from two oranges, remove the skin and pith from the third and cut into segments.
  • When the chicken is done, remove and arrange on a hot serving dish.
  • Pour out any excess butter and add the orange juice and sugar. Stir well then allow to boil rapidly for 2-3 minutes. (NOTE: pouring out the excess butter is what the recipe says. I think leaving it in would give more flavor and character to the sauce).
  • Adjust the seasoning and pour the sauce over the chicken.
  • Garnish with the orange segments and sprinkle over the almonds. Serve with cooked rice.
