  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Prep Time: 15min | Cook Time: 15min

In small bowl, combine honey with juice concentrate, orange zest, garlic, salt and red pepper flakes.

Pan Preparation: Rinse chicken with cold water and pat dry. Season lightly with salt. In large non-stick skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook about 4 minutes, until seared. Turn chicken; cook another 4 minutes until just cooked through.

Pour honey mixture over chicken and cook, turning chicken to coat as sauce begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Serve chicken breasts with honey-orange glaze spooned over the top. Sprinkle with parsley and green onion.


Other Cooking Methods: Grill or broil until just done, about 8 – 10 minutes, turing once and basting with sauce at the end of cooking.
