Citrus Glazed Chicken Recipe

Citrus Glazed Chicken Recipe

I don't make very many main dishes with fruit in them, but my two children and I love this recipe. The chicken's very tender and the sauce is absolutely wonderful.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
