Citrus Chicken

Hello all– On a busy day last week, this was the perfect simple dinner.  Just put the chicken in the marinade for an hour and then it takes about 15 minutes to cook.  It’s pretty and has so much flavor.  I splashed that sweet tangy sauce on everything.  Delish.

CITRUS CHICKEN
4 chicken thighs
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tab. soy sauce
1 tab. honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. minced ginger
cooking spray
1 tsp. cornstarch

In a large zip loc bag, mix up the orange juice, soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger.  Drop the chicken into the bag and let it marinate for an hour.  Then pull the chicken thighs out and set them on a pan sprayed with cooking spray.  Put them under a boiler on medium heat for about 8 minutes on each side until cooked through, depending on how big your chicken pieces are.

Meanwhile dump the leftover marinade from the bag into a pan and bring it to a real boil.  Put the cornstarch along with 1/3 cup water– into a container with a lid and shake it up to mix completely.  Then stir it into the simmering marinade for a couple minutes until it thickens.  Pour  this pretty sauce over the chicken when it comes out of the broiler.  How simple it that?  And yummy.
