Chicken In Papaya Sauce
Sautéed chicken simmered in a delightful citrus papaya sauce.
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 chicken breast halves, skinned
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

- Peel and remove seeds of papayas; reserve 1 teaspoon of the papaya seeds. Slice one papaya lengthwise in 1/2-inch slices; reserve.
