How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned.

  2. While chicken cooks, grate rind and squeeze juice from orange to measure 1 teaspoon and 1/4 cup, respectively. Add orange rind, juice, honey, and ginger to chicken, scraping to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 7 minutes or until chicken is done and orange mixture is syrupy. Sprinkle with green onions, if desired.

  3. Serve with: Roasted Broccoli with Almonds
