Baked Orange Chicken Recipe

Baked Orange Chicken Recipe

“This is a very quick, elegant recipe,” writes Pamela Siple of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. “It can easily be doubled or tripled for company. I like to serve mine with a baked potato.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Bake: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine orange juice and soy sauce. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Place chicken and reserved marinade in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon marmalade over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 2 servings.
