Citrus Brown Sugar Chicken

If you are stretching your grocery dollars by including more chicken in your menu planning, you can't have enough chicken recipes . . . add this recipe to your collection of chicken entrees!


1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
zest of 1 large orange or 2 medium lemons, about 1 tablespoon zest
juice of 1 large orange or 2 medium lemons, about 1/3 - 1/2 cup total
1 cup flour, I used brown rice flour
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar


Preheat oven to 350. 

Pound the chicken to 1/2" thick.

Combine the flour, paprika and salt in a flat bottomed bowl or pan.

Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour . . . both sides.  Coat well!

Heat the oil over medium high heat in a large flat skillet. 

Brown chicken in the oil for about 2 minutes on each side. 

Remove the chicken and place in a 9x13 baking pan. 

Deglaze the hot skillet with the citrus juice and scrape up all the browned bits.

Pour citrus juice mixture over the chicken and sprinkle with the zest and brown sugar.

Bake for 30 minutes.
