Chicken with Orange Vinaigrette



Introduction

This is an awesome vinaigrette that gives a nice counterpoint to the paprika on the chicken. It could be served with rice, but I served it with the roast vegetables with pineapple recipe on SparkPeople - and that used the rest of the can of pineapple. :-) This is an awesome vinaigrette that gives a nice counterpoint to the paprika on the chicken.

Ingredients

    1 10.5 oz can mandarin oranges in juice, drained
    4 T crushed pineapple in juice
    1/4 cup orange juice
    2 T lime juice
    1 clove garlic, minced
    2 T balsamic vinegar
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    salt (to taste)
    pepper (to taste)
    paprika (to taste)

Directions

For vinaigrette, combine juices, vinegar, garlic in a small bowl. Add oranges and pineapple. Refrigerate while you do the rest of the meal.

Cut chicken breasts into pieces that will cook quickly. Sprinkle with paprika, salt, and pepper to taste. Spray a skillet with olive oil cooking spray, cook chicken for about 5 minutes on each side, until browned. Lower heat and add liquid part of vinaigrette. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked. Add remainder of vinaigrette and cover until just heated through.

  • This was easy and fast & tasted great. We had it with couscous & really enjoyed it. - 11/14/08

  • This is a good recipe although the flavor is a little simple for my taste. I would also change the directions slightly to allow a thickening of the sauce... it's very runny. Very good though, and quick, so I'll surely make it again. - 10/28/08
