How To Make Grand Marnier Chicken


4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup milk
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 cup olive oil
1 orange, sliced into rounds
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup orange juice
1 (10.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1/4 cup brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier?(r))


Slice chicken breasts in thirds horizontally to make 12 thin chicken fillets. Lightly pound each piece. Place in a dish, and pour milk over them. Soak for 10 minutes. In a shallow bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and parsley. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge chicken pieces in the bread crumb mixture, and place in the hot oil. Quickly brown on both sides, then remove to a buttered 9×13 inch baking dish, or similar size. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place orange slices over the top of the chicken.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Drain the oil from the skillet, reserving 1/4 cup. Heat the reserved oil with the wine over medium heat until reduced by 1/2. Add broth and orange juice, and reduce by 1/2 again. Pour the sauce over the chicken, then drizzle with Grand Marinier.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly.
