Recipe by Carrot Top Christie
"I am so in love with blood oranges! And I set out to create a dish that highlighted their deep citrus flavor and absolutely beautiful coloring! However, this dish can be made with navel oranges as well, if blood oranges are out of season. Pairs really well with some fresh steamed vegetables for a healthy dinner!"

I have never seen blood oranges before. I called my local supermarket and had them special order them for me just to make this recipe :-) I thought it produced a very juicy tasting chicken. I was surprised that it did not have an overwhelming orange taste to it. The sauce is yummy, and I didn't have any white wine, but I did have red wine, so I used that in the sauce and it still tasted great. That is the only thing I did differently about this recipe, otherwise, I followed it exactly. I wouldn't change anything. Great dish!
Husband made a half batch of this recipe, and it was super delicious! Easy, and the instructions provided are excellent for the recipe. Will make again, and again... as long as we can find blood oranges for sale!
Loved this! I used the juice of 4 blood oranges in my sauce because I bought a bag of smaller sized ones, but it came together beautifully. My husband came home from work and the first words out of his mouth were, "What smells SO GOOD?" We loved the flavor, and will definitely make it again.
This is an all year recipe in my house but it is especially yummy this time of year when blood oranges are in season!
