Chicken Cooked in Fresh Orange Juice with Creamy Cheese Sauce

Chicken Cooked in Fresh Orange Juice with Creamy Cheese Sauce

Posted 2015-08-14 by finyfollow

I have cooked this chicken using fresh oranges as they are extremely cheap, sweet and juicy at the moment. If you want to save time, you could use a commercial orange juice, however I prefer squeezing my own and knowing there are no sweeteners or chemicals in it.

I have then added a creamy, cheese sauce to add on the top of each plate, and used boiled potatoes to mash in with these two rich sauces.

I have served it with a red cabbage salad complimented by a Wasabi mayonnaise and I also let the gravy sink into the salad.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 - 30 minutes
Makes: 3 - 4 servings

Ingredients
8 chicken thighs or lovely legs mixed
300 ml freshly squeezed orange juice (about 3 -4 oranges)
3 tbsp brandy (optional but it gives it a rich taste)
2 shallots
1 - 2 spring onions
2 tsp cornflour
6 tbsp cream cheese

For the Salad
Sliced red cabbage
1 carrot shredded or grated
1 apple, cut into pieces
1 spring onion
1 stick celery
Wasabi mayonnaise

Method
  • Fry the chicken pieces in a non-stick frypan without any added oil, over a medium to low heat for about 10 minutes, turning frequently.


  • Juice your oranges using an electric juicer if possible as this gets out more juice than doing it by hand.


  • Stir in the brandy and orange juice.


  • Add the onions and bring to the boil.


  • Cover, turn down the heat to low and cook for about 15 minutes or till the chicken is tender -this could take a bit longer depending on the size of your chicken.

  • While this is cooking prepare your potatoes, and boil till they are soft.

  • Meanwhile make the salad by cutting up all the ingredients, and adding either mayonnaise, or wasabi mayonnaise.
  • Wasabi mayonnaise gives it that extra twang


  • Mix the cornflour with a bit of water and then mix it into the cream cheese.


  • Put this into a small pan and heat over medium heat until it is boiling. Season to taste.

  • Put some potatoes on each plate. Spoon the chicken and juices on top of the potatoes.


  • Add some of the cream cheese sauce to each plate, and serve.
