  • Season chicken breasts w/salt & pepper. Heat olive oil in a deep pan, fry chicken breasts on both sides till golden brown, remove from pan & set aside.
  • Brown the diced carrot & onion in the oil & meat juices. Add orange & lime juice, sugar & white wine. Reduce sauce slightly to intensify the flavors.
  • Transfer mixture to a blender, puree & season w/salt & pepper to taste (I would use my immersion blender for this step).

  • TO SERVE: Plate ea chicken breast. Make 4 diagonally angled cuts from side-to-side to create 5 slightly fanned medallions, but do not cut all the way through the breast. Place a halved orange slice in ea of the slits. Stir puree sauce, ladle a bit over the length of ea breast & the rest equally along both sides of the chicken breast.

    I made 2 servings of this fab recipe last night and it was a real hit. Not only is it delicious and succulent but it's also lovely. I did use the Grand Marnier and even the uber picky DH loved it! I count this as totally company and holiday worthy in all respects. Used black rice with golden raisins added to it and steamed broccoli tops as sides. Talk about drama on a plate! Keeper.

    Wonderful recipe! I made it exactly as directed adding in the Grand Marnier. WOW - so intensely orange and oh so good. I love how the vegetables thickened the sauce just perfectly without needing cornstarch or other thickeners. I will definitely made this company worthy dish again! Made for the Bistro Babes - ZWT8

    Delicious! I completely agree with adding the optional Grand Marnier. I served it with Sauteed Cauliflower. The slight tartness of the orange sauce went beautifully with the sweetness of the cauliflower.
