Citrus Glazed Chicken

 Citrus Glazed Chicken
I don't make very many main dishes with fruit in them, but my two children and I love this recipe. The chicken's very tender and the sauce is absolutely wonderful.
4 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 30 min.


  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  • In a shallow bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Pound the
