Spicy Honey Orange Chicken

1/4 cup honey
2 tbs. frozen 100% orange juice concentrate
1 tsp. grated orange zest
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 tbs. safflower or sunflower oil

In a bowl, combine honey, juice concentrate,
orange zest, garlic, salt and red pepper
flakes. In large non-stick skillet, heat
oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and
cook about 4 minutes until seared. Turn
chicken, cook another 4 minutes until just
cooked through and juices run clear. Pour
honey mixture over chicken and cook, turning
chicken to coat as sauce begins to thicken,
about 2 minutes. Serve chicken breasts with
honey-orange glaze spooned over the top. You
can also garnish with a sprinkle of sesame
seeds or sliced scallions.
