1 spray olive oil spray
2 medium boned and skinned chicken breast halves 7oz. each
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons potato starch -- or flour
1 strip lemon peel -- (1x2-inch)
1 strip orange peel (1x2-inch)
2 teaspoons minced ginger -- fresh
2 small garlic cloves -- peel and slice
1/4 cup apple juice -- or cider
1/2 cup water -- optional

Preparation / Directions:

Prep time 5 minutes. Simmer 15 minutes Mix dry spices together and sprinkle on chicken. Remove rind pieces from orange and lemon with a vegetable peeler and rough chop. Heat a saute or skillet large enough to just hold the meat pieces. Spray. Sear to lightly brown the chicken pieces, both sides. Meanwhile combine the sauce ingredients in a measuring cup. Pour into the hot pan and let the liquid boil a bit to cook the thickener. Reduce the heat to low, cover tightly and cook gently for 15 minutes. Serve with the cooking juices. Add water or more apple juice if the sauce loses too much moisture.
