Sweet Citrus Chicken - Revisited

Awhile back, I posted this recipe for Sweet Citrus Chicken. I had forgotten to buy OJ so subbed in apple juice. While it was very yummy, I always wanted to try it the original way.

I made it last week, and I think I preferred the apple juice version! This time around, I threw in some craisins and served it with mashed potatoes and corn - it was like Thanksgiving in April! I don't know if it was the OJ or the craisins, but I felt it was a tad too sweet. Still really yummy, though, and I will either use apple juice in the future, or just cut back on the brown sugar and/or OJ.

  • 1-2/3 cups hot water
  • 1 pkg. (6 oz.) STOVE TOP Stuffing Mix for Chicken
  • 6 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
  • Handful of craisins

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Add hot water and craisins to stuffing mix; stir just until moistened. Set aside.

PLACE chicken in 13x9-inch baking dish. Mix juice, sugar and butter until well blended; pour over chicken. Top with prepared stuffing.

BAKE 30 min. or until chicken is cooked through (170ºF).


  1. This looks wonderful and I really like how citrus brightens up a dish!

  2. This looks really nice, not what I was thinking when I read the title, something I would like to try :o)

  3. I (finally) got around to making this (!), very good! My only suggestion is to season the chicken, etc. before adding the other things. Great meal though!
