I love cooking chicken: it’s unexpensive, tasty, tender (if cooked properly) and it can be prepared in so many different ways it’s unbelievable! These orange Rum glazed chicken breasts are no exception: everything just caramelizes perfectly on the chicken breasts, keeping them juicy and full of flavor. The alcohol will burn off giving you absolutely melt-in-your-mouth goodness in just 25-30 minutes; orange Rum glazed chicken is the perfect thing for Sunday’s kick-off … or any other day you need to satisfy your finger food craving or newest obsession with chicken. Instead of chicken breasts you can use chicken wings, they can be even better. Talking about the Rum, I suggest you to use Sailor Jerry Rum but any other Rum will work as well, also according to your personal taste. So, what are you waiting for? Pour yourself a good glass of Sailor Jerry and get cooking some delicious orange Rum glazed chicken!
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Juice from half of an orange
2 capfuls of Sailor Jerry Rum
2 tablespoons honey
¼ tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Add all of the ingredients except for the olive oil into a large freezer bag, shake to coat chicken evenly, and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 1 hour. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over low-medium heat. Add chicken breasts once skillet is hot and set the bag with the excess marinade aside. Cook the chicken breasts for 3-5 minutes on one side or until nicely browned on the bottom. Flip the check breasts over, pour out some of the marinade on top of the chicken (just enough to coat) and discard the rest.
Cook another 3-5 minutes. Turn heat to low and cook another 3-5 minutes, flipping the chicken every minute or so to evenly coat and glaze. If you leave it on one side for too long the glaze can burn so just keep an eye on them. Cut into the underside of the chicken breast to make sure it’s cooked thoroughly. Plate the orange Rum glazed chicken and serve with a side salad!
