Number of Servings: 4


    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 11-oz can mandarin oranges
    2 tbsp firmly packed brown sugar
    1 tsp prepared mustard
    3 tbsp ketchup
    1 tbsp vinegar
    1 tsp cornstarch
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/8 tsp ground cloves


Trim excess fat from chicken. Rinse chicken with cold water and pat dry. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and add oil. Place skillet over medium-high heat until hot, and add chicken to skillet. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

Drain oranges, reserving juice. Set oranges aside. Combine juice and remaining ingredients; whisk well. Pour over chicken in skillet. Cover and simmer 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Add reserved oranges and simmer an additional 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and pour sauce over chicken.

This recipe goes very well with rice! It also nicely complements the sesame carrotsI have posted as well. Enjoy!

    The sauce on this was very good! Interesting flavor combinations. Tasted just like a sweet and sour sauce you might get in a restaurant. I think it would probably be good with pork too. - 12/15/07
