C'est Bon Chicken

Do you need another chicken recipe? Do you need to use that orange marmalade that's sitting in your fridge? Well, we can take care of both right here!
Oh by the way, on my last post a couple of you seemed puzzled by my answer of Barracuda on my wish list...it's a muscle car.
Season 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
Pour 1 cup of AP flour into a shallow dish and season with with salt, pepper, 1 teaspoon of paprika, and 1/2 cayenne. Thoroughly combine. Dredge the chicken through the flour, shaking off the excess.

Heat a large skillet with 2 tablespoons of canola or vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Note: While searing the chicken in batches, you may need to add one more tablespoon of oil to the skillet if the skillet becomes dry. Remove to a platter and set aside.

Add 1 cup of white wine to the skillet and deglaze the skillet, scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Add 1/2 cup of chicken stock, stir to combine.
Add 2 tablespoons of orange marmalade and 2 tablespoons of hot sauce. Stir to incorporate and then add 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes and 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard.
Whisk to combine.
Bring to a simmer and add the chicken and the juices that are left in the platter.
Reduce the heat to low and cover tightly with a lid. Let the chicken braise for about 45 minutes.


Uncover and adjust seasonings serve with your favorite pasta or rice and garnish with parsley and chives.

Yes, I always need another chicken recipe! I love chicken!! I also love the combination of the marmalade and the hot sauce/crushed red pepper flakes. Thats a winner for sure, and the prefect way to use some of my home-made chili flakes. Thanks!

You want a muscle car too? I want a 69 Camaro!

Chicken recipes are always great! I have a question: we prefer boneless breasts and almost always substitute them in recipes. Other than time issues are we really changing anything or should we try to keep to the recipe more?

Debbie said...

That looks absolutely terrific. So delicious Katherine!

Marjie said...

Orange marmalade and mustard is a great variation on honey-mustard. I use orange juice whenever possible.

Love the Barracuda. I had a 1980 red Corvette. I swore that's what I'd look like if I was reincarnated as a car. Not so sure my old bones would bend into it today, but that's another story...:-(

Cathy said...

Yum!! I always have leftover marmalade to use up..this is perfect.

Marguerite said...

Sweet and hot is a great combination and with the white wine, sounds fabulous! I could see you in a Barracuda, cher! :) Have a great week!

Love this! We had a total Southren meal last night--homemade bread, beef tips and rice, and blueberry pie (from the freezer.) You would be proud!

Chris said...

That looks righteous! I can imagine how great the tangy sauce would taste.

Mary said...

This sounds pretty darned divine. I'll make room for another chicken recipe :-). I love sweet-hot combos.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

We eat chicken most of the time--so are always looking for new chicken recipes. Since I DO have some left-over marmalade in the frig, WELL---looks like we'll try this recipe SOON.

Thanks!!!!

Finally, something to do with that orange marmalade that YOUR niece begged us to buy, and then decided she didn't like it too much. Thanks!!!

That is funny :-) My husband just told me he was getting sick of chicken so I was on the lookout for new "chicken" recipes. THANK YOU! He is picky but he is going to love your recipe! Have a great week. . .
