Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken on both sides in the hot butter until golden brown on both sides, about 10 minutes; place the chicken into a shallow baking dish. Stir the flour, cinnamon, and orange juice into the skillet. Bring to boil, and cook until thickened. Season with salt to taste, then pour over the chicken breasts in the baking dish. Cover the chicken breasts with orange slices.
  3. Bake the chicken breasts in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I did not put this in the oven...simply browned the chicken, took it out of the pan, made the sauce and then returned the chicken to the pan w/ the sauce to continue cooking. I used a home-grown orange, so it was a little tart. Thus, I added a little Splenda. I would double the sauce next time to have enough to serve over rice.

This is the best recipe I have found on this site. My husband likes my cooking different recipes, but the kids make it difficult. I have two extremely picky children and they not only loved it, but requested it again this week. And as a bonus it prepares and cooks quickly so I can make when I get home from work with no preping the night before.

I doubled the cinnamon and added a couple TBSP of maple syrup as suggested by some of the other reviews and this dish turned out delicious. I think next time I'll try adding some raisins or prunes toward the end of baking.
