Baked Orange Chicken
I tried a new recipe this week and it came out really yummy so I thought I would share!
Disclaimer: When I cook I add a little of this and a little of that. SO, for the spices, use as much or as little as you like.
4 pieces of chicken (your favorite pieces)
In a shallow dish mix the bread crumbs, garlic, pepper, Italian seasoning and the zest from one of the oranges. In another dish, mix the egg and orange juice (squeeze juice from the zested orange). Dip each piece of chicken in the egg/orange juice mixture and then coat in the bread crumbs. Place in a baking dish. Top each piece of chicken with a pad of butter and a slice of orange. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until done at 375. Serve with rice.
