One Dish Orange Chicken Bake

The first time I made this was last week and it was a home run with my husband. It is real hearty food, delish and quick to prepare. The recipe below is what I used for 2 ppl (with leftovers in mind), but you can easily double this recipe for more people. You can also use whichever potatoes you have on hand and feel free to add other root vegetables to the base.

In your big baking dish add the “bed” of veg and toss them in a generous amount of olive oil and salt & pepper:

  • 20 mini potatoes cut in half (0r 3 yellow flesh potatoes cut into chunky wedges)
  • 1 white onion, sliced  (a red would be even better)
  • 10 whole garlic cloves

In a bowl, toss together:

  • chicken drumsticks and thighs (enough to feed your consumers – I used 4 drumsticks and 2 thighs – skin on, bone in= way more flavor)
  • 4 tbs honey
  • 3tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1 orange cut into wedges
  • fresh rosemary
  • add more salt & pepper & olive oil. I also added a splash of orange juice -optional

Place the contents of the bowl over your veg base. Bake for 40 mins (or until chicken is cooked through and veg are tender). Yum Yum =)
