Paula Writes:

I just love easy chicken dishes and it is so versatile you can do anything with it and have a great dish.

Orange Dijon Chicken

You will need (Utensils):

  1. 1 Large Bowl
  2. 1 Skillet
  3. 1 Roasting Pan
  1. 6 Boneless Chicken Breast halves
  2. 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  3. 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  4. 3 Tablespoons Orange Marmalade
  5. 2 Teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  6. 2 Teaspoons Honey
  7. 1/2 Teaspoon Red Pepper
*I usually set the chicken in a brine for an hour before preparing it. To do this, place the chicken in a pot of cold water with 1/2 Cup of Kosher salt. Rinse thoroughly before preparing.

  1. Heat oven to 350 Degrees
  2. Combine Marmalade, Dijon and Honey
  3. Heat oil in skillet
  4. Sprinkle the peppers on the chicken to coat
  5. Add half of the chicken and cook for 2 minutes on each side (until golden)
  6. Remove from skillet
  7. Add remaining chicken and cook for 2 minutes on each side (until golden)
  8. Coat chicken with Marmalade mixture and place in roasting pan
  9. Cook for 45 minutes

We have had quite a few Chicken recipes here at Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen. (Click here to see recipes labeled "Chicken). For those who like chicken, (and from experience many children do not like chicken). But chicken is fairly healthy, good for those watching weight, and does not require an "acquired" taste. If you are a meat eater, chicken works well. If you are not an accomplished cook (as most of us are not) - Chicken is a great place to start learning how to cook. Whatever the case chicken recipes seem to be very popular.

This looks great and I, too, am always looking for new ways to make chicken since there is almost always some in my freezer.
