You can first cook the chicken in its coating. Then you're left with browned bits in the pan to make a delightful sauce with orange juice and Italian seasoning. Topped with orange segments for color, this moist, tasty meal is ready in about 30 minutes.—Soraida Angie Cannestra, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"Noticed recipe just today. Rather than cooking chicken in oil, may try baking til done, at 350, then continue making rest of meal. Would definitely cut fat and extra calories."
