The honey-mustard-mandarin combo creates an entrée that absolutely belongs at a succah table! With its subtle orange notes, this piquant and tangy seared chicken is tasty and moist and presents beautifully.


  • 1½ lb (680 g) chicken cutlets, cleaned and trimmed
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • ½ tsp salt
  • oil, for frying
  • mandarin segments, for garnish
Mandarin Glaze
  • ¼ cup mustard
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 2½ Tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ cup juice from an 11-oz (310-g) can mandarin oranges
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ½ tsp orange extract
  • 1 heaping tsp cornstarch, mixed with ¼ cup cold water


In a shallow dish, combine flour with paprika and salt. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dredge in flour mixture and place into pan. Brown chicken on both sides until golden and transfer from the frying pan to a 9x13-inch (23x33-cm) baking pan.

Place all glaze ingredients except cornstarch and water in a small pot and stir to combine. Bring to a boil and pour in cornstarch-water mixture. Simmer until the liquid begins to thicken.

Pour sauce over chicken and cover tightly.

Garnish with mandarin segments immediately before serving.
