Citrus Chicken


Cooking chicken with fruits and herbs adds delicious flavor that can mix-up the humdrum chicken dinner.  Try this simple dish made with mandarin orange and fresh rosemary that you can make in 30 minutes or less! Serve it with a green vegetable like steamed broccoli or asparagus and my “Roasted Rosemary Potatoes.”

Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 4
  • 4 boneless, skinless organic chicken breasts
  • 1 c. all-purpose, organic flour (in the video I say 2 cups - this is if you use 8 chicken breasts!)
  • 2 c. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ½ c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 T. fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 1½ c. fresh mandarin orange slices*
  • ¼ c. butter
  1. Add flour into a large bowl.
  2. Dredge chicken breasts in flour, coating both sides.
  3. In a skillet on the stove top, melt butter.
  4. Add in floured chicken into skillet. Sauté chicken until golden brown on both sides.
  5. Add in orange and lemon juice and fresh rosemary sprigs. Cover pan and simmer chicken over low heat for 10 minutes.
*I like to use fresh fruit in my recipes. However, if you aren’t able to find mandarin oranges in season, you can use canned mandarin oranges (canned in their own juice, no extra sugar added).
