Chicken, Orange Honey (M, KLP)
Source: Libby Straus in the Miami Herald Food Section
Serves: 8

2 eggs
1 cup matzo meal
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. white pepper
4 tbsp. oil 2 chickens, cut in serving pieces
1 cup hot water
1 cup honey
1 6-ounce can orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 oranges, sliced thin

Heat oven to 350°.

Beat the eggs with 2 tbsp. water in a shallow dish. In a second shallow dish, mix the matzo meal, salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture and roll them in the seasoned matzo meal. Working in batches, brown the pieces in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides. Transfer to a roasting pan.

Mix the hot water, honey, and orange concentrate and pour over the chicken. Cover the roasting pan and bake 25 minutes.

Uncover the pan, baste the chicken with the pan juices and arrange the orange slices on top. Bake uncovered 20 more minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. The sauce will thicken and the chicken will take on a lovely honey brown color.
