Chicken Amaretto Superb

We like chicken and we have to include a lot of it in my husband's diet since he is a heart patient. So we have to find many and varied ways to serve it so we don't all get bored to death. This recipe is always a hit.


     1/4 cup flour
    1 teaspoon salt
     fresh ground pepper (you don't need too much)     
     2 teaspoons paprika
     2 teaspoons garlic powder
     6 chicken breasts ( skinless and boneless)
     3 -4 tablespoons oil (or as needed)
     3 tablespoons butter
     1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
     1⁄2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
     1⁄4 cup water
      2⁄3 cup Amaretto


  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine flour, salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder.
  3. Roll/coat the chicken in the flour mixture.
  4. Saute chicken in oil until golden brown and transfer to a greased casserole dish.
  5. In the same skillet, increase the heat to med-high and melt butter.
  6. Add in Dijon mustard, orange juice concentrate, water and Amaretto; stir constantly until liquid is reduced.
  7. Pour the sauce over chicken.
  8. Bake covered for 35-40 minutes. Serves six
 Easy recipe to follow and a very tasty dish to serve your family. We like it  with  mashed potatoes and veggies or rice pilaf but pasta would compliment it also. Bask in the compliments.

  2. I am so happy you liked it. I have never cooked meat with Amaretto before but it lends a very nice flavor.
    Hope you are better
