A Tangy Delight
"I agree that it needed a bit more. I modified as follows:
-Tossed the apples in a little brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
- For the topping i melted the butter and added a 1/4 cup more brown sugar, 1/4 tsp each ground nutmeg and vanilla extract.
-Dotted the top with a tablespoon of butter cut into little pieces before baking. "
Between two layers of plastic wrap, pound chicken breasts with meat mallet to an even thickness of about 1/2 inch. Place chicken in large, self-sealing plastic bag.
In medium bowl, whisk together lemon zest, orange zest, garlic, chives, salt, pepper, lime juice, lemon juice, honey and balsamic vinegar. Pour into bag, over chicken. Close bag securely and turn to distribute marinade. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or as long as 24 hours, turning occasionally.
Remove chicken from bag. Shake excess marinade into bag and reserve.
In large, heavy, nonstick skillet over high heat, warm oil. Saute chicken until browned, about 2 - 3 minutes per side. Lower heat to medium and continue cooking until chicken is done, about 2 more minutes per side. Transfer to serving platter and cover to keep warm.
Pour reserved marinade into skillet and bring to a boil over high heat. Scrape the bottom of pan with a wooden spoon to loosen any browned bits. Add any liquid that has collected around chicken and let mixture boil for 2 minutes, until slightly thickened and reduced. Stir in cream; cook for another minute. Pour hot sauce over chicken breasts. Garnish with slices of lime, lemon or orange.

Cindy84 3y agoI loved this recipe! It was delicious and tangy! I made it with plain white rice because the chicken has a great flavor already! Somehow my sauce looked darker than the picture, lol. Overall it was good and I'd make it again. My bf also enjoyed it!
claudiawoitschatzke 3y agoLoved it! Didn't use the exact amount of the ingredients, and the oranges I used where really sweet, so not too acidic as other reviewrs say. Definitely would do it again.
neilbarnett 3y agoJust gorgeous. Next time, I think I'll make more than the stated amount of sauce, though, my wife likes a lot of sauce.
