Honey-Orange Chicken

Prep time 8 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half, 2 tablespoons glaze, and 1 tablespoon almonds)
It's much easier to grate the rind before squeezing the juice from the orange. For easier measuring, spray the tablespoon with cooking spray before measuring the honey.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind (about 2 oranges)
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
