This is one of my favorite recipes, my mother used to love when I would make this for her. This is great served over rice.

6
2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup oil
1 can (12 oz.) frozen orange juice concentrate
12 oz. water
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 small cans mandarin oranges, drained
I 16 oz. bag of broccoli flowerers
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and pat dry chicken. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a gallon zip lock bag. Put in chicken pieces one at a time and coat evenly. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown chicken well on both sides. Remove from pan and place in a casserole or baking dish. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of oil in skillet. Add the can of orange juice, 12 oz. of water, bring to a boil, stirring to loosen brown bits. Add 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon sugar, cornstarch and 3 tablespoons honey.
