"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
3 lb. chicken breasts
4 tsp. Dijon mustard
c. finely chopped onions
2 T. unsalted butter, cut into bits
Salt & pepper to taste
1 c. orange juice
c. brown sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375.
Rinse and pat dry the chicken breasts. Smear the skin with mustard. Arrange the chicken, skin side down, in a shallow baking dish just large enough to hold it in a single layer. Sprinkle the pieces with onion, butter, salt & pepper. Pour the orange juice around the chicken. Bake for 30 minutes, basting it once during this time.

After the 30 minutes, turn the chicken skin side up and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake another 15-20 minutes, until chicken is tender and golden. Add more orange juice if the pan seems dry.

Remove the chicken to a serving platter. Pour the juices into a saucepan and boil over high heat until syrupy. Spoon sauce over the chicken and serve.

Personal Notes:
Serve over rice or noodles. And make sure you use high heat to boil the sauce - it takes a little while to thicken up.
