A while ago I experimented with Chicken and Oranges. Take a moment… You might think that I have totally lost my mind here, but I can assure you, this recipe is worth trying out.
It consists of tender chicken pieces baked in a casserole dish with tangy orange juice and spices. Think of spices like cinnamon and star anise. My absolute favorites. The citrus adds a zest to the dish, and served with fluffy buttery rice, this should have your guests pleasantly surprised – and keen for seconds.
I used 100% orange juice in this recipe, and it gives just the right amount of tartness and sweetness to the dish, complimented by the spices. I hope you can give this Citrus Chicken Casserole a try, it is finger licking good!
