Recipe: Baked Orange Chicken

Baked Orange Chicken served with a salad of Japanese cucumber and balsamic vinegar.

This is one of my quick and easy recipes. This dish is ready in 20-minutes.

Ingredients

chicken breast fillet
carrot, zucchini and orange slices
onion
olive oil
butter
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tbsp honey or brown sugar
salt and pepper


Steps

1. Prepare chicken. Remove skin if desired.
2. Combine wine, orange juice and honey or sugar in a small bowl.
3. Line a roasting pan with foil wrap and pour the prepared liquid ingredients.
4. Put a wire rack on the roasting pan and arrange ingredients.
5. Sprinkle a bit salt, pepper and brown sugar on top of the chicken and pour a bit of olive oil.
6. Top chicken with a slice of butter. (It looks glorious while melting!)
7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celcius) for 20-30 minutes. Watch chicken closely after 20-min mark as to avoid being overcooked.
8. If you have one, it's best to check doneness with a meat thermometer. Aim for the center. It's completely cooked if thermometer read 160 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit (71 to 74 degrees Celcius).

Serve

Arrange chicken and vegetables in a plate and pour the sauce/juice on top of the chicken.

Thanks and happy cooking!
