Orange-Sauced Chicken is a super-fast supper (think 10 minutes!) that’s rich with flavor, yet only has around 200 calories per serving—which means you don’t have to feel bad about going in for seconds. Orange juice, chicken broth, orange marmalade, and fresh lemon juice combine to make a truly irresistible sauce for chicken breasts dredged in Italian-style breadcrumbs. Orange marmalade can be found near the jams and nut butters at your local grocery. Serve over sticky white rice with mixed vegetables on the side. This is such a simple chicken recipe that is also impressive.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 2

Dredge chicken in breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or just until lightly browned on both sides. Add broth mixture; cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken is done. Sprinkle with parsley.

Chef's Notes

Serve with a teriyaki-glazed vegetable side like broccoli for the perfect at-home Asian cuisine-inspired meal.

You might want to read the directions again. It is very clear as to what and when to add the sauce.

This was great over fried rice (brown) and I sliced the chicken. It was beautiful, and most important, my guys gobbled it up. I will definitely make this again for my friends.😊

This was a very quick and easy plus tasty dish. Sauce did not overpower. Thanks for the recipe.

This is very easy to make which is a plus. But it's nothing worth getting excited about. I suppose one could play around with it and make it more interesting but I probably won't. I would suggest to anyone trying it that they double or better yet triple the sauce. The recipe makes little. I served it on rice and could have easily served it on noodles. But there wasn't enough anywhere near enough sauce to flavor the rice.

Ummm at what point does the orange sauce come into the recipe?

I can figure it out but the directions are pretty useless as is.
