DIRECTIONS

  • Thoroughly wash the chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  • Whisk together the citrus juice (marinade) ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Pour a 1/4 cup of this mixture into a large resealable plastic bag, and reserve the remaining. Add the chicken to the bag, seal and refrigerate 4 to 24 hours. Turn occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, peel the orange; cut in half lengthwise then cut crosswise into slices. Set the segments aside.
  • To a hot heavy-bottom skillet, add the olive oil followed by the butter. (NOTE: The butter should foam, but not turn brown.) Add diced onions to the skillet to sweat. When softened, add the chicken. (NOTE: Discard the citrus juice in the resealable bag.) Cook over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is tender and no longer pink.
  • Deglaze the skillet with wine. Pour the reserved citrus juice mixture over the chicken, and top with the orange slices. Cover and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through.
  • To serve, divide the chicken into 4 servings; spoon drippings from the skillet over the chicken and top with the chopped chives. If desired, served with cooked rice and garnish with lemon and lime wedges.
