Marinated in a honey-orange marinade, this chicken comes out of the oven soft, tender, and juicy. The zest in the marinade really adds the flavour of oranges to the dish which also has a hint of spice from the chili pepper and sweetness from the honey. Goes well with a tossed salad, or for something heartier, pair it with rice.
What you’ll need:
2 – 3 chicken breasts, boneless skinless
Juice of one orange
Zest of half of an orange
1 teaspoon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon oil
½ teaspoon chili flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
What you’ll do:
Rinse chicken, pat dry with paper towel, and set aside.
In medium bowl, make a marinade by mixing together the rest of the ingredients. Add chicken to the marinade and stir to coat. Seal and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
To cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place breasts in an oven safe dish and coat with marinade. Bake until the chicken reaches 180 degrees or for approximately 45 minutes. The chicken is fully cooked when the juices run clear.
