Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


4 servings

"I serve this tender chicken in a sweet sauce over rice," notes Maureen Readey of Farmingdale, New York. "With fresh broccoli or asparagus, it makes a special meal for company."


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges
  • Hot cooked rice
  • 2 green onions, sliced


  1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Place in a greased 2-qt. microwave-safe dish. In a bowl, combine brown sugar and cornstarch; stir in teriyaki sauce, apple juice, oil and garlic. Drain oranges, reserving juice; set oranges aside. Add juice to the teriyaki mixture; pour over chicken. Cover and microwave on high for 6 minutes. Baste chicken with sauce. Cover and cook 2-4 minutes longer or until sauce is thickened. Serve over rice. Garnish with onions and oranges.
