How to Make Simple Orange and Cashew Chicken


  1. Dust chicken lightly in flour with salt and paprika.
  2. Saute in butter until golden brown (turn only once).
  3. Add orange juice; cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes.
  4. Uncover, remove chicken to a serving dish.
  5. Reduce liquid to a thickened sauce. Pour over chicken, sprinkle with nuts and serve over prepared white rice.
  6. *****TIP: I have made this both with boneless skinless chicken breasts and with bone-in and skin on chicken breast. It just depends on what I have on hand. Just be sure that if you use bone-in, that you make sure that chicken is cooked all the way through.
