How to make it

  • Trim excess fat from chicken and score skin. (I prefer to use skinless chicken.)
  • Place chicken in a self-sealing plastic bag and set in a bowl.
  • For marinade, combine orange peel, orange juice, half the wine, 4 Tbs. of the honey, and 3 tsp. of the ginger. Pour over chicken and seal bag. Refrigerate 4 to 24 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Remove breasts and transfer marinade to a large saucepan.
  • Add remaining wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes, or until reduced to one-fourth cup (watch carefully as mixture may foam over.)
  • Meanwhile, brown chicken breasts in olive oil, turning once.
  • Transfer breasts, skin side up, to a baking dish.
  • Roast uncovered at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer registers 170 degrees.
  • Add remaining honey, remaining ginger, broth, and soy sauce to reduced marinade. Return to a boil. Boil gently, uncovered, about 15 minutes, or until reduced to two-thirds cup, stirring frequently.
  • Season to taste.
  • To serve, arrange chicken on a bed of rice. Spoon sauce over the top.

    I've made a recipe of my own very similar to this, except without the white wine, chicken broth or soy sauce. It tastes very good without these sodium additions. I also added 3 tablespoons of lime juice. And I just marinated for half an hour and baked.

    But as soon as I made it, I knew it was the best chicken I ever made. I'm sure this recipe is just as good.
