This easy and delicious chicken is a favorite with my friends, and people always ask for the recipe!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1 cup hot water
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tablespoons bourbon whiskey
- 1/4 cup chopped raisins
- 4 slices orange
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour. Melt butter in a large deep skillet over medium heat and brown on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
Stir brown sugar, cornstarch and allspice into skillet; gradually stir in water. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes or until mixture is smooth and thick. Stir in orange juice, bourbon and raisins.
Return chicken to skillet and top each breast with an orange slice. Cover skillet and simmer for about 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink inside. Serve chicken with sauce.
