Chicken in a Tangerine Sauce


    Prep: 20 minutes
    Cook: 25 minutes
    Marinate time: 2 hours
    Yield: 4 servings

    1 cup fresh tangerine or orange juice
    1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
    2 tablespoons honey
    1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
    1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
    11/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
    2 tangerines, seeded and thinly sliced
    2 tangerines, seeded and chopped
    Chopped fresh rosemary sprigs

    1. In a medium bowl whisk together tangerine juice, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and orange zest. Place chicken in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add half of the tangerine marinade; seal and toss gently to coat. Reserve remaining marinade for later use. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

    2. Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove chicken from bag. Arrange chicken in a single layer on the rack of a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425°F for 20 minutes, turning once.

    3. Preheat broiler. Place chicken on a jellyroll pan; arrange tangerine slices and pieces around chicken. Pour reserved tangerine marinade over chicken, coating evenly. Broil 5 minutes or until browned and heated through. Garnish with fresh rosemary, if desired.
