Week 7 – Orange and Lemon Chicken
Week 7 of 52 Weeks of Food
This dish sounds fancy, but is really simple to make, and packs in oodles of flavour. I stole it from my mum who discovered it while she was trolling the internet for new and interesting recipes.
It goes great with either rice or with garlic bread.
Chicken: 1 kilo
Onions – 2 medium, sliced thin
Garlic: 1 tsp, chopped fine
Chicken stock: 1 cup
Salt: To taste
Pepper: To taste
Oranges: 1, sliced round
Fresh squeezed orange juice – 1 cup
Fresh squeezed lemon juice – juice of 2 lemons
Oil: 1 tbsp
Saute the onion and garlic in the oil.
Add the chicken and saute till the chicken, sealing in the juices.
Add the cup of chicken stock.
Add the orange and lemon juice.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Stir well and bring to a boil.
Simmer till the chicken is done.
You can leave the gravy brothy or cook for a little longer for a slightly thicker consistency.
When done, garnish with the orange rounds.
Serve hot, adding a fresh orange round to each helping 🙂
