From the Kitchen: Orange Chicken

September 5, 2014

Looking for a simple meal that will transition nicely between the dwindling days of summer and the beginning of autumn? Try this recipe for orange chicken, which boasts a mild citrus flavor with a bit of spice. I made it years ago for a work luncheon and it got a lot of compliments.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg, any size
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • 1½ cups herb-seasoned stuffing, crushed
  • 1 tbsp. grated orange peel
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1½ tsp. paprika
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken halves
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Orange slices (optional)

Directions:

  • In a shallow bowl, beat egg, add orange juice
  • In another bowl, combine stuffing mix, paprika, orange peel and salt
  • Dip chicken in to the egg mixture, then into crumbs, turning to coat well
  • Pour butter into a 13 in. x 9 in. baking dish; pace chicken in baking dish, turning once to butter both sides
  • Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 45 minutes or until the chicken is tender and juices run clear
  • Garnish with orange slices, if desired

*Makes 4-8 servings.
