This raspberry orange chicken sauce is the perfect sweet and tangy sauce for chicken to simmer in. Even our kids couldn’t get enough of it! I make this orange chicken recipe healthy by getting rid of the breading, and simmering the chicken in the orange chicken sauce to cook (instead of deep frying!). CHICKEN
-1 tbsp avocado oil
-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts halved
ORANGE RASPBERRY SAUCE
-2 shallots, minced
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1/2 cup Reisling (or other white wine)
-1/2 cup orange juice
-3 tbsp seedless raspberry jam
-1 tbsp soy sauce
-1 tsp honey
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper optional
-fresh mint to garnish
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; heat until it begins to ripple.
Brown chicken, about three minutes per side until lightly browned. Remove from skillet and set aside, keeping warm.
Lower heat and saute shallots and garlic until soft.
Whisk wine, orange juice, jam, soy sauce, honey, salt, and cayenne in a bowl then pour into the skillet, mixing with the shallots and garlic.
Return chicken to skillet.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, occasionally basting chicken with sauce.
Remove lid, increase heat to medium, and simmer 5-10 minutes to reduce and thicken sauce.
Serve chicken and sauce over rice, if desired. Garnish with fresh mint. (Recipe adapted from @GeniusKitchen
