Sunny Citrus Chicken

This recipe was always a family favourite when I was growing up.  I would always look forward to this flavourful dish.  I think my mom always doubled the sauce so there would be enough for my brother and I to cover the rice completely with the delicious sauce.  I have altered the recipe slightly, but this is an easy recipe for a quick weekday dinner.

Ingredients – Serves 4

1 tbsp margarine
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp curry
1/2 cup arrowroot starch
1 egg white
1 tbsp orange and/or lemon zest
4 chicken breasts


1. Place egg white and arrowroot starch each in a shallow bowl.

2. Cut chicken into strips.  Place strips into egg white and then into starch.  Sprinkle chicken with zest.

3. Melt margarine in a skillet and brown chicken on both sides until cooked.

4. Mix together chicken stock, honey, orange juice and lemon juice.  Blend in cornstarch and curry powder.  Pour into clean skillet; bring to a boil, stirring as it thickens.

5. Return chicken to skillet and simmer for 5 minutes.

Serve over rice.
