Since her mother makes this warm and flavorful Encore dish for just about every celebratory occasion, Chef Elana affectionately calls it “holiday chicken.” It’s super easy to make, but also feels really impressive to serve. Perfectly pan-seared chicken breasts are doused in a sauce of fresh orange juice, brown sugar, and white wine, and braised with shallots, apricots, and currants for a sweet and tangy balance. Roasted alongside tender fingerling potatoes, the aroma alone will bring some holiday magic to your kitchen, in any season.
