Orange Chicken


This is a nice tangy dish that the whole family will enjoy. Serve with rice and green beans.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 medium skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 small oranges, peeled, skinned and chopped


Rinse and dry chicken breasts. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook chicken on medium/high until no longer pink - about 10-12 minutes, turning once.

In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch, orange peel and salt. Gradually stir the 1/2 cup orange juice into the cornstarch mixture. Cook until the sauce thickens, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for a further two minutes. Add the orange pieces and heat through.
