Ingredients

    8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 1-1/2 pounds)
    1/3 cup chopped onion
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon margarine or butter
    2 teaspoons finely shredded orange zest
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
    2 tablespoons honey
    Orange wedges (optional)
    Mint leaves (optional)

Tips

Add or subtract some of the honey if you like it sweeter or not. Also I've tried it with a splash of lemon juice in the OJ and it's adds a really nice flavor boost.


Directions

In a large skillet cook chicken, onion, and garlic in hot margarine or butter over medium heat about 6 minutes or until chicken is brown, turning once. Add orange peel, orange juice, and salt to skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Sprinkle cinnamon and allspice onto chicken; drizzle with honey. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes more or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Makes 4 servings
