Chicken In Orange Sauce
Submitted by: Sandi
6 4-ounce chicken breast halves, skinned
3 tablespoons orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 cup defatted chicken broth or water
3 whole cloves
1 3-inch cinnamon stick
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper to taste
1 1/2 teaspoon potato starch
Orange slices for garnish
Parsley sprigs
In a nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, brown the chicken breast on both sides in the orange juice concentrate and 1/4 cup of the broth for about 15-20 minutes. Add the cloves, cinnamon stick, pepper, cayenne, and 1/2 cup of the broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 7-10 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink inside. With the remaining 1/4 cup broth, blend in the potato starch until smooth. Add this mixture to the skillet and stir until the gravy thickens and begins to bubble. Arrange the chicken on a platter and pour the sauce over all or pass the sauce around to individual plates. Garnish with the orange slices and parsley. Serves 4-6.

Rosemary Roasted Leg of Lamb
Submitted by: LadyLynda
2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoons kosher salt
1/4 cup fresh rosemary, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 5-pound leg of lamb
1/4 cup red wine
2 tablespoons shallots, chopped
2 cups chicken broth
Combine pepper, salt, rosemary, garlic and olive oil and stir. Coat leg of lamb with mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 425F. Place lamb on a wire rack with roasting pan underneath. Roast lamb for 15 minutes. Add wine to pan and roast another 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F, add shallots to roasting pan and continue roasting, basting every 15 - 20 minutes until lamb is done to your liking. The lamb will take an hour or more to cook but should read at least 130F on a meat thermometer for rare meat. Remove lamb from oven. Skim off fat from roasting pan, add chicken broth and stir. Slice lamb and serve with broth from the roasting pan. Lamb also goes very well with mint sauce or jelly.
