DIRECTIONS

  • 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).
  • Return puree mixture to pan, place chicken breasts in the sauce w/any juice accumulated while set aside & gently simmer for 10 min (covered). Serve immediately as per the following note.
  • 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.
