KEYS-STYLE CITRUS CHICKEN


~ Better Homes and Gardens 30-Minute Meals

6 medium chicken breast halves, about 1 1/2 lb.
3-5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 1/2 T. butter
1 1/2 t. lime zest
3 T. lime juice
3/8 t. ground ginger
just under 1/4 t. crushed red pepper
1 1/2 oranges

In a large skillet, cook chicken and garlic in butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning chicken once and stirring garlic occasionally.

Meanwhile, combine zest, juice, ginger, and red pepper; set aside. Peel orange. Reserving any juice that comes out, slice orange crosswise, then cut slices into quarters. Add reserved juice and lime mixture to skillet with cooked chicken. Top chicken with orange slices, cover, and cook 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Spoon juices over chicken when serving.

Makes six servings.

Notes: Our Zaycon chicken is bigger than this recipe indicates, so I just cut 1 1/2 pounds into six (close to) equal pieces.
