Guest Post: Elegant Chicken Cutlets in Orange Rum

 I have a guest post today from "the other side" :)
This recipe comes to us from my friend Erika, who is also known as "mom" to a spunky 6-year-old.  She shares a chicken recipe that sounds absolutely amazing, perhaps for an extra special evening.

Thanks Erika!
Elegant Chicken Cutlets in Orange Rum

1/4 c flour
salt and pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp butter
1/4 c amber rum
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 c orange juice
1 1/2 tsp grated orange peel (optional)
1/4 c whipping cream
2 tbsp parsley
orange slices to garnish

Place flour on plate. Season with salt and pepper. Slice chicken breast in half horizontally. Coat in flour mixture. In skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add Chicken for about two minutes each side until lightly brown. Transfer to clean plate. Add rum, garlic and cook until rum is reduced to a glaze. Stir in orange peel and juice and whip cream. Bring to boil. Return chicken and cook until done. Serve with parley and orange slices as garnish.

You can make this with low fat whipped cream but it is not as tasty.

  1. Oh wow this sounds fantastic. Tell your friend I say thank you and look forward to making that some time next week. It sounds like a great date meal even if that date is your best friend or your puppy dog (who could be one and the same).
