Orange Chicken Recipe

Orange Chicken Recipe

I found this recipe several years ago while looking for a new way to prepare chicken. My husband, daughter and I live on a small farm in the mountains of north Georgia. This has become our favorite evening meal dish. —Betty Sexton, Blairsville, Georgia

MY REVIEW

"I put my chicken in for 36 minutes and it was still slightly overdone (I used the butter, not cooking spray). Next time I will set it for 30 and just keep checking it. It was a very interesting orange flavor. Definitely different. Both my husband and I enjoyed it, but even more importantly, my son (who has feeding issues) loved this. I will probably make this in the future, but 1 star off for too long cook time, and for the hassle of grating an orange peel and crushing stuffing."

"Made this tonight. It was a hit. Didn't have an orange on hand, but will definitely add the orange peel next time. Fortunately, I had leftover stuffing mix with herbs in the freezer. Adding the stuffing mix to my pantry staples. No leftovers, making more next time!"

"I had trouble with the chicken being too dry - but I had omitted the butter and used cooking spray as someone else suggested. Next time I'll use the butter and I bet it won't be as dry! The orange flavor was very nice and hubby liked this one a lot. :)"

"I will admit to being a little skeptical about this recipe with the orange juice in it, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good this chicken really was. I did not add the orange peel, but used all the other ingredients. It was done at about 38 minutes."

"Made this last night. Crazy good. The whole family loved it and we have some very picky eaters. Pounded the chicken breasts first, but followed the recipe exactly. Just had some left over for lunch and it was still great!!"

"I made this with chicken tenderloins and it was absolutely delicious. Even my 5 grandchildren, ages 7 to 12, really liked it. I did not put the orange peel in, but when I make it for my husband and I, I will try this. Thanks, Sukie"

"Great quick dinner. I used fresh squeezed oj & added diced jalape?o & fennel before baking. Adds a nice heat/pepper flavor. Will definitely make again. A real hit!!!!!"

"Don't like the idea of chicken roasting in an oily pan, so placed chicken on cooling rack in oven to cook. Works great. Recipe is yummy!"

"I love this recipe. Followed it exactly the first time and family loved it. I have since used this recipe many times, and have changed a few things. Usually buy a larger pack of chicken so increase to 2 eggs and a dash more orange juice. Use extra orange zest (peel) for more robust orange flavor. Use full box of stuffing mix. I spray the baking dish and tops of the chicken after placing in the dish instead of using the melted butter. No one noticed any difference! Very tasty chicken!!"
