This is a dish I made several times during the summer because it has a fresh taste which I enjoyed very much in the awful heat we suffered this season. I do it even with fish instead of chicken, as long as it is a pretty bland fish, because the star flavour here are the oranges mixed with the onions... I know it sounds weird, but I promise it is good!

For two, I used 2 chicken breasts, 2 oranges, and one large white onion, a bit of dried mint (which is actually pretty optional. and I couldn't tast it much. Ok, basically, I just liked the speckles of dark for contrast, lol!)

  • chop/mince the onion finely, and spread it in a lightly oiled pan
  • slice the oranges, obtaining 4 slices from each one. save the rounded ends, we'll squeeze the jouce out of them
  • arrange 4 orange slices over the onions (so, during cooking the oranges will give their flavour to the onion)
  • on top of the orange, spread/balance the chicken, cut into tiny pieces,and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, mint and the orange juice squeezed from the ends of the oranges
  • place the other 4 slices of orange on top of this pile, it will look more or less like this:

  • add a little bit of water to the bottom of the pan, cover with a lid and start cooking
  • because of the unstable nature of te tiny chicken pieces, at some point the structure collapsed, so I stirred it around to spread the flavour better
  • and let it cook some more, till the water has gone and the onion/oranges start to caramelize a little
  • serve and enjoy!

To round up the dish a little more, you could serve it with a side of rice (I'd pick a basmati), maybe flavouring it with a little orange juice...

More pics on my blog, if you can stand the google translate button... (actually, I am laughing sooooo much when I read on the translated bit, trying to figure out what I wrote in my language and how on earth it became what appears on the page, LOL)
