I Seen A Man Raisin’ Chicken

Cinnamon Raisin Chicken

Inspired by this recipe

I’ve been on a raisin kick lately. My favorite, and often mocked, way to eat raisins is to put a bunch in a bowl with milk and eat them like cereal. It’s delicous, and you should probably try it. Being on such a raisin kick, I googled recipes with raisins and found this one. This is a quick and simple dinner that tastes really great. I was suprised to find that I didn’t really taste the orange juice in the recipe, which was the part that concerned me. It contains very little ingredients, and is great for those who are looking for something easy to make.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 (4 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup raisins

In a skillet, saute onion, garlic, cinnamon and pepper in oil until onion is tender. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until juices run clear. Add orange juice and raisins. Cook over low heat for 5-10 minutes or until heated through.
