Orange Soy Glazed Chicken

Plain chicken is the worst thing in the world. Right next to green beans and pork chops (sorry, James, I just don’t like them). I’m constantly in search for new recipes, and I came across an Emril Lagasse one that didn’t seem half bad.

Of course, I didn’t have time to marinate it, nor was I going to grill it in the middle of winter (or on my stove). However, the orange soy glaze sounded pretty good and I needed to get rid of an old orange.

So you need –

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 – 2 tsp of orange zest
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • olive oil
  • white pepper

Combine the orange juice, zest, sugar and soy sauce in a small pan. Reduce to a thick glaze (about 10 minutes). Meanwhile, rub some olive oil on chicken breasts. When reduction is ready, pour over chicken and sprinkle with white pepper. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

I served with steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes. Not exactly Asian cuisine, but it’s all I had. Plus, James requested a “grain” and looked longingly at the bag of potatoes.
