Honey Orange Chicken with Goat Cheese Peas

I have a tendency to buy too much food at the supermarket… sometimes I have visions of meals that just never get made or sometimes I buy items that are on sale.  I decided to make dinner this week with what was already in my fridge.  I found some goat cheese, chicken tenders, an orange, and some almonds.  Random ingredients, but perfect for Honey Orange Chicken with a side of Goat Cheese Peas.  I was stunned at how quick and easy it was to make!

Honey Orange Chicken

Pieces:

  1. one package of chicken tenders, about 1 pound
  2. juice of one orange
  3. 3 tbsp. honey
  4. 1 tsp. nutmeg
  5. 2 tsp. parsley flakes
  6. 2 tsp. lemon pepper
  7. 2 tsp. “camp mix”- a blend of garlic salt, pepper, and celery seed

Process:

  1. In a greased cast iron skillet, put the chicken tenders over medium heat.
  2. Smother them with half of the orange juice and half of the honey.
  3. Sprinkle half of the seasonings on top.
  4. After about 4 minutes, turn the chicken tenders over and smother them with the other half of the juice, honey, and seasonings.
  5. After another 4 minutes, flip one more time and let cook until cooked through.

(Afterwards, I also thought you could serve with some craisins on top!)

Goat Cheese Peas

Pieces:

  1. one bag of frozen peas
  2. one quarter cup of water
  3. one half cup sliced almonds
  4. 3 tbsp. goat cheese
  5. 1 tsp. parsley flakes

Process:

  1. In a large sauce pan, pour the peas and water.
  2. Cover and cook over medium heat until they are tender, about 10 minutes.  Be careful not to overcook them.
  3. While the peas are cooking, spread the almonds over a saute pan.
  4. Heat the almonds on low heat for about 4 minutes, just until they toast.  Be careful they don’t burn.
  5. Toss the peas with the almonds.
  6. Serve with the goat cheese and parsley on top.

Happy Allergy Free Eating!
