Baked Chicken With Orange-Pineapple Juice

Recipe By : GlendaTay

7-9 Points Per Serving

 

3 pounds boned and skinned chicken breast halves(or 1 chicken or 3 pound chicken parts) -- * see note

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper -- or red

2 tablespoons unsalted butter -- cut into bits

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup orange juice

1/2 cup pineapple juice

2 teaspoons basil

1/4 cup dark brown sugar -- firmly packed

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

 

Position rack in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 350. Mix together Dijon mustard, basil and honey. Smear the chicken with Dijon mustard and honey mixture. Arrange chicken skin side down in a shallow roasting pan or baking dish just large enough to hold it in a single layer. Sprinkle the pieces with finely chopped onions, bell peppers, butter, salt and pepper, and paprika. Pour orange and pineapple juice around the chicken. Bake, basting once for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken skin side up and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake until the chicken is tender and golden, about 20 minutes longer. Add more orange juice or pineapple juice if the pan seems dry. Pour the juice into a small sauce pan and boil over high heat until it becomes syrupy. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.

Makes 6 servings

NOTE: The origional called for 1 chicken or 3 pounds chicken parts, I substituted boneless skinless chicken breasts to lower the points per serving

It is 7.88 points per serving if you use boneless skinless chicken breasts , but if you use 1 chicken or 3 pounds chicken parts with the skin then it is 9.11 points per serving.-Jenn
