POULET A L'ORANGE #Recipe @PegCochran #Easterweek

Doesn't that sound fancy?  The original recipe came from AllRecipes and it's actually called Chicken with Orange Sauce  but I thought the French version had a nice ring to it.

This is an easy dish that you can make for a weeknight meal or if you want to do something different for Easter, this would be lovely with the fresh orange flavor.  And if you call it Poulet a l'orange, your guests will be doubly impressed!

Ingredients:

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves or 4 - 6 chicken thighs depending on size (bone in or out, it doesn't matter)
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar, divided (I used the Splenda version)
2 cups orange juice
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour


What to do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Place chicken in baking dish (I used a square Pyrex dish)  Spread mustard over the chicken and sprinkle with the chopped onion.


Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar over the chicken to coat lightly.  Add enough orange juice to cover chicken.  Dot with butter on top.





Bake 45 minutes.  Remove from oven and pour sauce into a saucepan.

Sprinkle chicken with remaining brown sugar and return to oven.

Whisk flour into the sauce in the pan, adding any leftover orange juice.  Cook over high heat until the sauce thickens.



Remove chicken from oven when sauce is done and serve with sauce.




COMING MAY 2!

    It's June in Cranberry Cove and Monica Albertson's plan to sell cranberry relish to chain stores is taking off. The cranberry bogs are in bloom, and local beekeeper Rick Taylor and his assistant Lori Wenk are bringing in bees to pollinate the blossoms.  When a fatal prick fells Lori, the buzz is that Rick is to blame.

    In trying to clear her friend’s name, Monica discovers that more than a few people in Cranberry Cove have felt the power of Lori’s venom, and it looks as if this time she may have agitated the hive a bit too much.  With the fate of the farm on the line, Monica must get to the bottom of the crime before another victim gets stung.
