Dinner tonight awoke our senses with a pretty spicy chicken dish! Chipotle-Orange Chicken Cutlets has a smoky, spicy and tangy sauce made from orange juice concentrate, a bit of water and chipotle chiles. The chicken is pounded reasonably thin and then lightly coated with flour. It goes through a quick dip in orange juice concentrate and then back into the spiced flour mixture to ensure a crunchy crust. To cook, butter is melted with canola oil for flavor and to protect the butter from burning to quick. The cutlets are cooked until they achieve a deep golden brown crust on each side and then removed. The sauce mixture is then added and allowed to boil for a couple minutes since raw chicken was dipped in the concentrate. This mixture can become pretty thick, so if needed, add a couple tablespoons or so of water to thin it out some. We served this on top of a brown and wild rice mixture.
