Playing with food...

Despite what my mother taught me as a child...I love playing with my food. Coming up with a new recipe always thrills me. Excitedly I wait as my husband takes the first bite, eager to know the fate of my creativity.

This one was a winner! My week is a success!! I hope you like it as well.

(Next time I would serve this with rice. The sweet and spicy orange sauce would be perfect over rice.)

(Mindi Original)

2 t. Cajun spice
½ C. brown sugar
zest of one lime
¼ t. salt
2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise and pounded to ¼ inch thick (or 4 small chicken breasts, butterfied and pounded ¼ inch thick)
½ C. orange marmalade
¼ C. lime juice

1. Combine Cajun spice, brown sugar, lime zest and salt in a small bowl.
2. Rub over all surfaces of the chicken.
3. Sauté chicken breasts in oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. Turn and sauté an additional 2-4 minutes.
4. Blend marmalade and lime juice; swirl in pan until melted.
5. Reduce heat and cover for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. It shouldn't’t take too long if the chicken has been pounded flat.

That looks so divine! I have to say I agree with you on the disappointment of eating out. It's all bad these days. So here's to you and your recipes!
