Tender chicken breasts benefit from the essence of the honey, orange and garlic glaze. Leftovers are wonderful sliced into a fresh salad.

6 boneless chicken breasts, skinned
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt

Grease a 2″ high pan that will accommodate the chicken in a single layer. Situate your oven racks so that one is in the middle of the oven and the other will allow your pan to sit 4 – 6 inches below the broiler. Preheat oven to 400°

Place the chicken in the pan. Clean and mince the garlic. Combine the honey, orange juice, oil salt and garlic in a small bowl and stir to blend thoroughly. If you’re juicing a fresh orange, zest and mince 2 – 3 teaspoons of the skin and add it to your glaze. Pour the glaze over the chicken and place the chicken in the oven, uncovered.

On the rack in the middle of the oven, bake for 10 minutes and then baste the chicken with pan juices. Bake for 10 minutes more and baste again with the pan juices. Turn on the broiler and move the pan of chicken to the upper rack. Cook for an additional 5 – 10 minutes, basting at 2 – 3 minute intervals, until the chicken juices are clear and the meat is thoroughly cooked.

Yield: 6 servings
