Treasure Island Chicken “Orange Chicken”

We had dinner at our friend’s, Annette & Brian’s, home and Annette made this dish for us. Both Phil and I had seconds. It was a simple meal but it was very good.

4 chicken breasts (I’d recommend cutting them in half)
½ stick of butter
3 Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp sugar
1 ½ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ginger
1 ½ cup orange juice

Place the chicken breasts in a greased shallow “stove to table” baking dish. Brush with melted butter or margarine. Bake in a preheated 375F oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, melt ½ stick of butter. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and ginger in a small bowl, mix, add to butter. Stirring constantly, add orange juice. Cook slowly until thick and smooth. Pour over chicken and bake 40 minutes longer. Serve over rice.
