- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, grated ginger, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. This will be your flavorful marinade and glaze.
- Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish and pour half of the marinade over them. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to marinate.
- Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade (save the marinade for later) and cook the chicken breasts for about 5-7 minutes on each side until they are golden brown and cooked through.
- While the chicken is cooking, pour the reserved marinade into a saucepan and simmer it over medium heat until it thickens into a glaze, about 5-7 minutes.
- Once the chicken is done, brush the glaze generously over each breast during the last few minutes of cooking. Make sure the chicken is well coated and caramelized.
- Remove the chicken from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it.
- Serve the Sweet & Tangy Orange Glazed Chicken hot, garnished with fresh cilantro. It pairs perfectly with steamed rice or roasted vegetables.
