MOM Chicken: Mandarin Orange Marmalade Chicken (gluten free, too)
Sometimes, the best recipes are the simplest ones. Especially when you discover them without too much forethought. Take today's recipe. With just a couple pantry staple ingredients, regular ol' chicken becomes something really special. Even better the entire meal was on the table in less than 30 minutes. Works for moi!
White Onion, halved, sliced thin (you dont' want to use a sweet onion here)
1 tablespoon Olive oil
Chicken breasts cut into thin strips
Butter pat (again)
Heat oil in a fry pan. Add the onions, and fry them until crispy. You are going for texture as well as flavor here. Keep warm. In a large saute pan, heat oil over med high heat.
Season the chicken strips with seasoned salt or your favorite seasoning. Add to the pan, and saute until golden. Add a butter pat to the pan and spinkle with couple shakes Worcestershire sauce.
Meanwhile, heat the marmalade in microwave until melted. You don't need very much, I used about 1/4 cup for 5 servings. Once heated, stir in a butter pat, and pour over chicken in pan. It will bubble up deliciously. Be sure to stir up all the browned bits that are in the pan. The end result is a glaze/sauce that is out of this world good. Simple, yes. Good, absolutely! Sprinkle with the crispy onions, and serve immediately.
big and small, seen and unseen, I thank you for your dedication. You are loved and appreciated!
