  • Orange
    3 oranges, peeled and cut into wedges + 30 ml (2 tbsp) zest
  • Gingembre
    15 ml (1 tbsp) ginger, minced
  • Assaisonnements pour poulet
    15 ml (1 tbsp) chicken seasoning
  • Poitrine de poulet
    4 skinless chicken breasts
  • Poivron rouge
    1 red pepper, chopped

Also needed

  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) honey
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil


  • 10 ml (2 tsp) garlic, minced
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped


  1. In a bowl, mix the orange zest, ginger, chicken seasoning, honey, 15 ml (1 tbsp) olive oil, and garlic, if desired. Pour into an airtight bag. Add the chicken breasts and shake to ensure they are fully coated with the marinade. Remove the air from the bag and seal it. Let marinate for 15 minutes to 3 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. When ready to cook, drain the chicken and discard the marinade.
  3. Heat the rest of the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken breasts for 6 minutes on each side, until the chicken is no longer pink in the centre. Transfer to a plate and cover with aluminum foil.
  4. In the same pan, cook the peppers and the red onion, if desired for 1 to 2 minutes. If desired, add the orange-ginger sauce (see recipe below) and bring to a boil.
  5. Add the chicken breasts and orange wedges to the pan. Heat for 1 minute.
