Honey Orange Chicken with Wild Mushrooms
2 8-ounce chicken breasts, with bone, without skin and wings
Olive oil spray
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 1/2 ounces shiitaki mushrooms, sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 medium garlic cloves, crushed
PREHEAT broiler and line a baking tray with foil. Remove fat from chicken breast. Spray baking sheet with olive oil spray and place chicken, bone side down, on tray. Spray chicken with oil spray. Sprinkle chicken with sage, thyme, salt and pepper to taste. Broil 10 minutes. Turn and broil 5 minutes. Check to make sure chicken is cooked through. A meat thermometer should read 165 degrees.
