Chicken Citron Recipe

You would find a thousand restaurants in Europe serving a version of this wine and chicken dish. Serves four.
2 broiler-fryers, halved
Salt and pepper
2 T. lemon juice
3 T. melted butter
1/2 cup Madeira
1 cup strained orange juice

V.S.P. sprinkle cavities of chicken with salt and pepper. Arrange cut-side down on broiling pan. Sprinkle lemon juice over chicken, drizzle on butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil about 5 inches from heat until chicken begins to take on color. Pour on Madeira and orange juice. Cover tightly with foil. Lower heat to 375 degrees and bake until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain off pan liquid and skim off excess fat. Boil rapidly and reduce sauce by half. Sauce should thicken slightly. Spoon over chicken and serve.
