Number of Servings: 4


    2 tbsp. olive oil(or for less calories use olive oil cooking spray)
    4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2 small organic onions
    1 cup orange juice or mango juice
    1 teaspoon dried basil
    1 teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    4 tbsp lime
    1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil


Lightly oil a large frying pan and set over medium heat. When hot, add chicken and cook until light golden, 3-4 min per side. Meanwhile, thinly slice red onion. When chicken is golden, scatter onion around chicken. Pour in orange juice. Sprinkle with dried basil, cumin and salt.

Using a wooden spoon, scrape up and stir in any brown bits from pan bottom. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer, turning chicken halfway through, until chicken is springy when pressed, 6-8 minute Squeeze juice from lime overtop. Remove chicken and place on dinner plates. Increase heat to high. Boil pan juice, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 2 minute Stir in fresh basil. Drizzle over chicken. Serve with jasmine rice and slices of mango.
