Orange Chicken with Almonds

Orange Chicken with Almonds created by Rita1652

Beautiful presentation and so flavourful! I like to serve buttered orzo and steamed asparagus alongside. The aparagus tastes so good dipped into the sauce.

  • In a large, stainless-steel saucepan, brown the chicken, patted dry and seasoned with salt and pepper, in batches, in the butter over moderate-high heat, transferring it to a plate as it is browned.
  • Pour off all but 2 tblsps of the fat from the saucepan.
  • Add the flour mixture, cinnamon and ginger to the saucepan and cook the roux over low heat, stirring, for 3 minutes.
  • Add the orange juice in a stream, whisking.
  • Bring the liquid to a boil, stirring, and simmer the sauce until slightly thickened.
  • Stir in the honey, almonds and the raisins and arrange the chicken in the skillet in one layer (or as close to it as you can).
  • Simmer the chicken, covered, for 30 minutes, or until it is tender.
  • Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  • Skim the fat from the sauce and reduce it over moderate-high heat until it is thick enough to coat back of spoon.
  • Add the orange slices and heat over low heat until the slices are heated through.
  • Nap the chicken breasts with the orange slices and some of the sauce.
  • Pass the remaining sauce separately.

    The recipe was reduced to 2 servings and after reading Rita's review, the flour was cut in half. The sauce was plenty thick. The sauce is delicious with rice and went well with recipe #33015.

    This is full of sweet orange flavor slightly scent with spice. Nice crunch from the almonds! But I did add almost 1 cup of water to it and the sauce still ended up very thick. Thanks!
