Orange Baked Chicken

Labels





I don't usually send Gabe to the grocery store but something was going on and I told him chicken breast were on sale. He came home with a large package of chicken parts, which isn't a problem but needed to find a recipe that Neil would like.

Oranges were on sale and since he's visiting from NY I thought a bit of Florida's vitamin C would be good for him.

Recipe is from The Seasoned Mom.

Ingredients:

1 broiler-fryer chicken (2.5 to 3 lbs.)
3 Tablespoons minced shallots
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary (or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from approximately 3 oranges)
Orange zest

Directions:

Prheat oven to 350 degrees F.

 Wash and dry chicken and set aside.

Prepare a large baking dish with nonstick spray.

Add the shallots, paprika, rosemary and salt and pepper to a small bowl and mix well.

 Rub chicken with seasoning mixture and add to the baking pan.

 Bake chicken until brown and tender – about 1 hour, 15 minutes or until internal temp of chicken reaches 145 degrees and baste the chicken frequently with orange juice.

I know Myra is going love this- I had 3 orange shells left. The recipe did not call for zest but why waste them? 

When I took the chicken out of the oven I removed the zest from the oranges and added to the baked chicken. Perfect addition!

  1. Ain't it fun sending a man to the store for something? On the rare occasion I've had to send Bob? I have to detail the list SO much it's 2 pages long....then GOD FORBID if the store is out of the item on the list.....he'll look for the brand name or some clue and get what he thinks is a good substitute-that usually ISN'T. They try, don't they? :)

    That chicken looks SO good. I'm like you-I don't waste ANYTHING and the zest adds more of that great orange flavor.....I'd so the same as you. I've got a couple whole chickens downstairs I could cut up for this recipe...PERFECT!

    By the way-I LOVE those wooden utensils too-ain't no mistakin' who those belong to! :)

  2. You are right Linda, I do love this. Anything with orange and orange zest has to be good. This sounds so good. I can't wait to try this. I would only use the breasts, but it should be just as wonderful. I am admiring your photo and also I see you have wooden spoons with your name on them. How cute!!! I hope you had a great birthday. Did you get spoiled???

  3. Now that's one way of know one running off with your wooden spoons and saying they had those ones when you go running after them. I will try this one but I too will use the Breasts of the Chicken. I also hope your birthday was a very special one. You deserve only the best. Hugs
