ROASTER BREAST A L’ORANGE

Serves 6

If you have a choice when buying the orange for this recipe, buy a Valencia in preference to a Navel. Navel oranges are excellent eating oranges, but they’re not good juice oranges; the juice develops an off flavor if not used within half an hour. The Valencia, on the other hand, has a more stable flavor in its juice form.

1 roaster breast

1-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

1-1/2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar

Dash ground pepper

2/3 cup orange juice

2/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup julienne-cut orange peel strips

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350oF. Place breast skin-side up in roasting pan; roast 45 minutes. Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, stir together cornstarch, sugar and pepper. Gradually stir in orange juice and broth until smooth. Over medium heat, bring to a boil; boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in orange peel and lemon juice. Roast chicken, basting frequently with sauce for 20 minutes longer or until juices run clear with no hint of pink when a cut is made near the bone. Heat remaining sauce and serve with roaster breast.
