Chicken and Pasta with Orange Sauce

Chicken and Pasta with Orange Sauce
Recipe By: Bahar

About this Recipe:

BaharBahar: Orange flavored sauce! This may sound strange for a pasta dish but tastes fabulous. This recipe is from Najaf Darya-Bandari's cook book in persian (Ketab-e mostatab-e ashpazi, az sir ta piaz) with few modifications.

Main Ingredients:

Chicken Breast: 2 (or 3-4 chicken thighs), skinless and boneless, cut to 2-3 pieces
Onion: 1 small (coarsely chopped)
Oil: 2 tbsp
Bell Pepper: 1 cored and sliced (preferably red or orange)
Soy Sauce: 2 tbsp
Chicken Broth: 1/2 cup
Orange Juice: 1/2 cup
Orange Zest: 1/2 tbsp
Black Pepper: 1/8 tsp
Cream: 1/2 cup
Pasta: Fettuccine or Linguine for 4


1. Heat the oil in frying pan over medium heat. Saute onion and chicken breasts (or thighs) in oil for 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Drain the oil and discard the onions. Cut the cooked chicken pieces into 1 square inches cubes.

2. Add chicken cubes and the next 6 ingredients (bell pepper, soy sauce, chicken broth, orange juice, zest of orange and black pepper) to a sauce pan and bring to boil over medium-high heat.

3. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

4. Add the cream and let cook for few more minutes. Remove from the heat before it starts to boil.

5. Add on top of your favorite pasta (preferably fettuccine or linguine) and serve.
