St. John Chrysostom's preaching was so grace-filled and effective that they called him the "honey-tongued" saint. So, perfect day to bring in a little honey to the menu, right? There are so so many easy ways to add a touch of honey to your day as a super simple way to honor this saint and doctor of the Church. Honey on toast, honey over apples, peanut butter and honey sandwiches for lunch (that's what the boys have every. single. day. and no one is allowed to ever tell them that other people have different things for lunch each day. Ever.). We love our honey over here so much so that there is discussion in the house of venturing into beekeeping next year! I'm pretty psyched about it. Anyway, today in honor of his feast, we had one of my husband's fave meals, orange honey chicken. SO simple and quick but super tasty, plus if you use a good organic ketchup, it's all real food ingredients so win all around.
Orange Honey Chicken
1-2 lbs. boneless chicken breast (or any boneless part) cut in chunks
2 tbsp. flour
olive oil for browning
4 oz. frozen orange juice concentrate (half the container)
3 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp. ketchup
1 tsp. salt
Mix together orange juice concentrate, honey, vinegar, ketchup, and salt. Set aside. Coat your chicken pieces in the flour. Saute in heated skillet in several tbsp. olive oil.
Once chicken is cooked through, pour the orange honey mixture over the chicken and cook in the sauce on medium low heat until thick.
Serve over your favorite rice.
It goes perfectly with steamed broccoli or snow peas.
St. John Chrysostom, pray for us!
