orange chicken with broccoli on rice

Honey-Mustard Orange Chicken

I just love my cast iron skillet. It’s truly a friend that has never let me down. We’ve been together through thick and thin, and I can always trust my skillet to deliver great flavor and delicious dishes!

Don’t you just love bright colors and bold flavors in food? When I’m trying to decide what to fix for dinner, I imagine how the colors will blend on a plate and if the recipe will taste as good as it looks. Honey-Mustard Orange Chicken will truly surprise you. The flavors in this dish will wake up your taste buds and say HELLO! ūüôā

It all started with a few chicken tenders and curry seasoning. I threw the whole gang in my favorite skillet with a drizzle of olive oil and sautéed the chicken over medium high heat.

That’s when I spied a Cara-Cara orange hanging out in the fridge. Citrus and poultry love each other, so in went the juice of an orange. Since I was craving something tangy, I reached for a bottle of Honey Mustard BBQ sauce. It was a match made in heaven!

Broccoli is usually my veggie of choice, but you could add anything to the sauce in the skillet and it would taste amazing. Try asparagus, or whatever green thing you can get your hands on. The veggies cook in the tangy sauce which adds to the boldness of this dish.

Here’s another all-in-one skillet meal that makes preparation and clean-up a breeze! Enjoy!
