Citrus Chicken

This tangy chicken dish is fast and easily made with ingredients on hand. It's perfect for those "what-to-cook-for-dinner" days.
  • cooking spray
  • 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breast halves -- trimmed of visible fat
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. orange juice
  • 1 T. coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 T. parsley
  • 1 T. cornstarch
  • 3 T. water

Generously coat a heavy skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes on each side. Add lemon and orange juices, pepper and parsley and cover the skillet with a lid. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Remove the chicken and keep warm.

Mix the cornstarch and water in a small dish and add to the skillet. Stir constantly until the juices thicken to the desired consistency. Return the chicken to the skillet and serve.
