Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Remove the chicken from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it.
  7. Serve the Sweet & Tangy Orange Glazed Chicken hot, garnished with fresh cilantro. It pairs perfectly with steamed rice or roasted vegetables.
