Preparation:20 min
Ready in:45 min


For servings

21 ouncesChicken breasts
freshly ground peppers
2 tablespoonsclarified butter
1 ⅔ cupsBasmati rice
1 cupfrozen peas
2 tablespoonshoney
4 teaspoonsOrange liqueur
parsley (for garnish)


1 Thaw the peas. Wash the rice in a sieve under running water, then put into a pan with just double the amount of lightly salted water and bring to the boil.
2 Cover and cook over a very low heat for about 15 minutes. Then add the peas and cook for a further 5-10 minutes, or until done.
3 Meanwhile season the chicken breast fillets with salt and pepper. Heat the clarified butter in an ovenproof frying pan and brown the chicken on one side over a fairly high heat. Turn over and roast in a preheated oven (180°C | 350F | gas 4) for about 8 minutes, or until cooked.
4 Wash 1 orange in hot water, slice off 4 slices and shred a little of the zest (approx. 2 tsp). Squeeze the rest of that orange and the other orange.
5 Deglaze the roasting juices in the frying pan with the orange juice, and stir in the honey and orange liqueur. Add the orange slices and orange zest to the pan and season to taste with salt and pepper.
6 Serve the chicken breasts on warmed plates, spoon the orange glaze over them and add 2 orange slices to each. Serve garnished with parsley.
