Orange-Maple Reduction

This is a topper for chicken that you can make with ingredients you have on hand in less than five minutes. Serve up your veggies of choice and some couscous (a five minute super-side dish!) and you have a jazzy new twist on the same ol’ supper! This recipe will top four chicken breasts. Slice breasts on an angle and fan out on plates before topping. Be sure to try out Rachael’s other two skillet sauces, Skillet Barbecue Gravy and Apple Cider Gravy.


  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

  • 1/2 cup orange juice

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • A pinch of chili flakes or chili powder

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Mix the chicken stock, orange juice, maple syrup and chili flakes together in a small saucepan on high heat. Let it come to a bubble long enough for it to reduce by half, about 5 minutes, until thick and syrupy. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. This is one of many "Yum-o!" recipes – it's good and good for you. To find out more about Yum-o!, Rachael's nonprofit organization, go to www.yum-o.org.
