Why I Love This Recipe

We wish our neighbors on the north a Happy Canada Day! In honor of Canada Day I thought I would share a couple of our favorite Canadian recipes which we found in the Canadian Living's Country Cooking cookbook. This cookbook we purchased at Munro's books in Victoria, British Columbia.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 chicken breasts, deboned and skinned
1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon orange rind
2 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
1/2 cup honey
2 Tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate,thawed
1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 Tablespoon orange rind
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


Pat chicken dry.

In a large glass bowl, combine orange juice, olive oil,orange rind,hot pepper flakes, black pepper and thyme; add chicken and turn to coat.

Cover and marinate 8 hours in refrigerator.

Glaze: In another glass or pyrex bowl combine honey, orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, mustard, black pepper, thyme,hot pepper sauce and rosemary.

Remove chicken from marinade.

Arrange chicken in a baking pan.

Serve with Basmati rice and vegetables.

This is so delicious - the flavors are wonderful and so easy to put together. I thought the honey would make it too sweet for my spicy husband, but everyone loved it. Thanks for this recipe! Molly
