Macaroni Grill's Chick L'Orange

Macaroni Grill’s Chick L’Orange

8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast (to 10) – thinly sliced
1/4 ounce diced Andouille or smoked sausage
1/4 ounce diced carrots
1/4 ounce diced red bell pepper
1/4 ounce diced celery
1/4 ounce diced onion
1 garlic clove crushed
1/2 ounce olive oil
2 ounces soy sauce
1 splash white wine
1 cup orange juice

Cut whole breast in half, and then from side to side, yielding 4 breast shaped slices of chicken. Dip in the soy sauce.

In a hot pan, start with olive oil, then add carrots, red bell peppers, and andouille; sauté for 2 minutes. Add celery and onion; sauté for 2 minutes. Look for clear onions, and slight burning on edges of vegetables.

Add chicken to pan, searing both sides, while scraping the bottom of the pan to prevent burning. Add garlic. De-glaze with white wine; add orange juice and reduce by half. The sauce should have a rich brown color, with a slight hint of orange.

Serve with white rice and steamed broccoli.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
