Easy Orange Chicken
- In a large plastic bag, combine flour, salt, curry powder, garlic powder, and pepper; add chicken and shake to coat, reserving any extra flour mixture. In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the chicken breasts and cook about 5 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once. Transfer chicken to a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Repeat with remaining chicken and oil. Stir any remaining flour mixture into pan drippings in skillet. Remove from heat.
