Orange Honey Chicken

Here's an easy recipe that goes together quickly and has just a few ingredients that you should already have on hand.  And another good thing about this dish is that you only dirty one pan.  I would guess you could use chicken breast with the skin on if you don't like thighs.

6 chicken thighs (bone in and shin on)
1/2 cup of all purpose flour (more if you need it)
1 large orange
1 tsp paprika
1/2 - 3/4 cup orange juice (I just squeezed the orange and put in some of the insides too)
3 TBL honey
2 gloves garlic minced
1 chicken bullion cube
1/4 cup red wine
2 TBL olive oil  plus 1 large pat of butter (for frying)
salt and pepper

Rinse and pat dry the chicken,  add salt and pepper and then dredge the chicken in the flour shaking off the excess.  As you can see I just use a plastic walmart bag, easy cleanup.
Squeeze the orange into a bowl, add honey, garlic, paprika,  salt/pepper and segments (mushed). 

In a large fry pan add oil and butter, when pan in hot add the chicken skin side down and brown on each side until they look like this.  It should take about 6 or so minutes on each side.
When both sides are browned to your liking, add the wine and chicken bullion and cook for about 5 minutes, add the orange sauce and bring to boil, turn down, cover and let cook for about 10-12 minutes.  Baste once  during cooking.  Turn chicken and cook an additional 10-15 minutes, baste once and cook until chicken is done.

In the very top picture you can see I added a potato I had made the night before, thought it would be an easy was to warm it to go with the chicken and would add some different flavors to the potato.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you try this easy recipe.
Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the time to DO all the things YOU love.
