Honey and Orange Chicken

Ingredients for 3-4 persons

400 gm chicken breast fillet

2 full spoon of honey

Half orange juice

2g orange zest

2 generous pinches of salt

4 full spoon of olive oil

Note 1:

Great for accompanying your favorite rice recipe!

Note 2:

Orange can be substituted with lemon (Lemon and honey chicken) but the amount of the juice should be 1/3 of a lemon and only 1g of the zest due to its higher acidity..


Step 1: Cut your chicken breast fillet in long and thin slices.

Step 2: In a small recipient prepare your 'honey / orange mixture' by mixing your honey, orange juice, orange zest, salt and olive oil

Step 3: On low heat, add your chicken slices and your 'honey / orange mixture' obtained in step 2

Step 4: When your chicken is half cooked (almost opaque white color), turn the heat to maximum (caramelization will occur soon).

Step 5: Wait for the chicken with the 'honey / orange mixture' to start caramelizing. This will be indicated by a change in color to golden brown.

Step 6: Once the color starts to change, continue stirring until the chicken slices have all caramelized uniformly.

Step 7: When that uniformed golden brown color is obtained, you are done! Serve your chicken as per your preference !

Good luck !
