Orange Walnut Chicken

I thought this was really good. It comes from Taste of Home, and everything from them is delicious. We didn't add the extra green onion garnish because of the kids, but it still turned out wonderful.

3 Tb orange juice
3 Tb vegetable oil, divided
1 Tb soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 Tb butter
4 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tb honey
1-2 Tb grated orange peel
2-3 tsp grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

  • Combine orange juice concentrate, 2 Tb of oil, soy sauce and garlic. Add chicken and turn to coat. Refrigerate 2-3 hours. 
  • Remove chicken and reserve marinade. In a skillet, cook chicken in remaining oil until juices are clear. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, saute nuts in butter until lightly browned. Remove and set aside.
  • Set aside 1/4 cup green onions for garnish. Add remaining onions to saucepan and saute until tender. Add reserved marinade and the next 8 ingredients. Bring to a rolling boil and boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for 5-10 minutes or until sauce reaches desired consistency. Serve chicken over rice and top with the orange sauce and walnuts and onions.
