There’s plenty of the gorgeous sauce, so be sure to serve whole-wheat egg noodles, couscous or rice on the side.

4 servings | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

2 Uncle Matt’s Organic navel oranges
2 tablespoons all-purpose organic flour
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed and tenders removed
1 cup reduced-sodium organic chicken broth
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup golden organic raisins
2 tablespoons honey
1 3-inch cinnamon stick
1/2 cup slivered organic almonds, toasted

Preparation

  1. Zest and juice one orange. Remove the skin and white pith from the other orange, then halve and slice. Reserve zest and juice separately from the orange slices.
  2. Combine flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess. Transfer the remaining flour to a small bowl, add broth and whisk to combine.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add wine to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Add the flour-broth mixture, the reserved orange zest and juice, raisins, honey, cinnamon stick and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan and cook, turning the chicken once or twice, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat registers 165°F and the sauce has thickened, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Discard the cinnamon stick. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and garnish with the reserved orange slices and almonds.

Apple Honey Chicken Drumsticks http://www.unclematts.com/2015/09/16/apple-honey-chicken-drumsticks/ Wed, 16 Sep 2015 21:49:48 +0000 http://www.unclematts.com/?p=2626 more]]> Apple honey chicken drumsticks are your go-to meal when you need a healthy option for dinner. Featuring honey, red pepper flakes, Uncle Matt’s Organic Apple Juice and sesame seeds, the flavors are a marriage that will delight your taste buds!

Ingredients

12 skin-on chicken drumsticks
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cups Uncle Matt’s Organic apple juice
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons sesame seeds (optional)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Set a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet. Put the drumsticks on the rack and season both sides generously with salt and pepper. Bake 30 minutes; flip the drumsticks and continue baking until golden and crisp, about 30 more minutes.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: Bring the apple juice, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt to a high simmer in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the sauce is syrupy and coats the back of a spoon, 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside until the chicken is done.

Stir the sesame seeds into the sauce, if using, and warm over medium heat, if necessary. Transfer the chicken to a large bowl. Add the sauce and butter and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the chicken to a platter and drizzle with any remaining sauce from the bowl.
