Taste The Fruity Favorite: Fruited Chicken
Are you looking for a new twist on the traditional chicken recipe? If so, you’re going to love this flavorful dish that brings together sweet and savory flavors with a hint of citrus: fruited chicken.
This delicious entrée is a refreshing take on a classic dish, and is sure to tantalize even the most selective palates. The succulent chicken is combined with a sweet and sour sauce – made from a mixture of oranges, lemons, and spices– that infuses the tender bird in an aromatic medley of fruit and herbs.
Although this dish takes its inspiration from a variety of culinary traditions, it stands out for its unique combination of ingredients and complex flavors. The sweetness of the oranges and lemons is contrasted by a rich and flavorful combination of bay leaves, oregano, and cumin, giving the dish a multi-faceted flavor profile.
The key to this recipe is in the way it is cooked. The chicken is carefully browned in a skillet before being slowly simmered in the sweet and sour sauce, allowing the herbs and spices to slowly permeate the meat. The slow cooking process ensures that the chicken stays moist and tender, while also infusing it with a delicious medley of flavors.
