  1. In a medium bowl, mix flour and pepper. Dredge the chicken breasts in the mixture to coat, and set aside.
  2. Melt butter and heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place coated chicken in the skillet, and cook about 10 minutes per side, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  3. Increase skillet heat to high, and pour in the orange juice. Cook until reduced by about 1/2.
  4. Stir in the orange zest, capers, and parsley. Return chicken to the skillet, and coat with the orange juice mixture to serve.

I just made this for dinner tonight. While the chicken was cooking I was able to chop the parsley and grate the orange zest so prep was easy. I served it over rice. I asked my family what they w...

Really excellent- 4*'s because I had to tweak. First, the recipe does need salt. I added about 1/2 tsp. to the flour and pepper mixture. Second, I added about 1 tsp. sugar to the orange mixture ...

This was so good! We thought the sauce was perfect, not too sweet or tart. It was great with rice. The only problem was that I didn't want to stop eating! :0)Thanks Heather!

This is one of our weeknight staples, we make it all the time. Tonight we had it with steamed asparagus. Yum!!! Do be sure to add salt to the flour mixture. I've recently discovered that I'm all...

Cook time was perfect: Very tender, and moist chicken. Capers & zest add a nice touch of tartness to the orange. Surprisingly tasty considering the lack of herb and spice ingredients.

Delicious. Based on several reviews, I marinated the chichen in a white wine / OJ combo and I decreased the zest to 1 teaspoon. The results were very tasty! I've attached a photo which doesn'...

Surprisingly good and easy to make. I'm 13 and this is what I make for dinner when my parents would like a brake :)

Excellent dish - made it just as stated and it was great. Served it with Arborio rice and green beans - my husband wants to know when I will make it again!
