Recipe Ingredients for Five-Spice Roasted Chicken Breasts

1 lb chicken breats, boneless, skinless, trimmed
1 oz (1 tsp) five spice powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 oranges, zest & juice
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp water

Recipe Directions for Five-Spice Roasted Chicken Breasts

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.

  2. Place chicken top-side up on a cutting board and make three parallel, diagonal cuts into each breast, but not through the meat.

  3. Sprinkle both sides with five-spice powder and salt.

  4. Place the chicken top-side down in an ovenproof skillet over medium-low heat.

  5. Cook until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

  6. Transfer chicken to a plate; pour off all the juices from the pan.

  7. Return the chicken to the pan top-side up and transfer to the oven.

  8. Roast the chicken for 10-15 minutes for medium, depending on the size of the breast, until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 150F.

  9. Transfer to a cutting board; let rest for 5 minutes.

  10. Pour off any juices remaining in the pan; place the pan over medium-high heat and add orange juice and honey.

  11. Bring to a simmer, stirring to scrape up any browned bits.

  12. Add orange zest and soy sauce; continue to cook until the sauce is slightly reduced, about 1 minute.

  13. Stir cornstarch and water mixture then whisk into the sauce; cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, 1 minute.

  14. Thinly slice the breast meat, drizzle with orange sauce.
