No, I don't make New Year's resolutions.
I try to be a good person, eat right and exercise. And I try not to be smug when I succeed, and try not to beat myself up when I fail.

I hope you and yours have a wonderful 2014.

Have a great new year.

My only resolution is to try some different recipes this year.

Krazy Kruizers, a few days ago on another thread, you mentioned an Orange and White Wine sauce, would you kindly share the recipe?

That is a great resolution to try new recipes.

It wasn't I who mentioned an orange and white sauce.

AH -- now I remember.

It is a chicken dish.

I marinate chicken breasts in white wine with rosemary for at least 8 hours. Then I add a can of defrosted orange juice and cook at 350 F for about 1 1/2 hours. Near to serving I cook white rice.

Plating -- rice on plate -- cut up the chicken and place on the rice. Then spoon the orange white sauce over the chicken and rice.

Good question. I just open the freezer door in the grocery store and pull one out -- not with the extra pulp.

I think it is either 6 or 8 ounces.

Thanks for your reply.

Not sure if we have frozen orange juice in our supermarkets, if not will juice a couple of fresh oranges.

Again thank you for your help.

I use 1/2 bottle of white wine.

It is a 12 ounce can of concentrated frozen orange juice. I just replaced the one I used before.

Thus it is thicker than squeezed oranges.

Thank you for this information.

Will check for the orange juice when next at our supermarkets.
