Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Cook: 30 min.
- 1/3 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
- 5 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
- 1 tablespoon butter

- 1/2 cup orange marmalade
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup lemon juice

- In a small bowl, combine orange juice concentrate, 4 tablespoons oil, soy sauce and garlic. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

- Set aside 1/4 cup green onions for garnish. Add remaining onions to saucepan; saute until tender. Add the marmalade, juices, honey, orange and lemon zest, salt, pepper and reserved marinade. Bring to a boil.
