Fruit Juice Chicken
As the chicken bakes, the fruit juices bubble around it, creating a sauce that is tangy, with a hint of sweeness -- a perfect complement to tender, moist chicken.
2 chicken breast halves, with skin removed
1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped ginger (optional)
1/2 cup grapefruit juice
1/2 cup pineapple juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken breasts in baking pan. Pour butter over and sprinkle with salt and papper. Pour juices over chicken. Add ginger. Bake 45 minutes.
Pink Poached Pears
Try this simple but pretty dessert with a sprinkling of fresh raspberries.
1 ripe pear
1 cup cranberry juice or 3 tablespoons raspberry/cranberry frozen concentrate with enough water to make 1 cup liquid.
Pinch of cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon rind, shredded
Peel the pear, slice in half lengthwise, and remove core. Place pear and all other ingredients in saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Turn pears and simmer 5 more minutes, until tender. (Length of time depends upon type of pear.) Serve warm or chilled, with a spoonful of the liquid.
