I found this simple chicken dish in a cookbook my mom put together for me when I moved out. I don’t know why I didn’t see it before and I don’t remember ever eating it, but it sounded good.
I really wanted to grill the chicken, but we were out of propane so into the oven it went. The only problem with this dish is that my 6yo daughter was expecting “orange chicken”…the type from a Chinese place. After we explained that it was similar but that’s not what it was supposed to be she happily cleared her plate.
Serve with brown rice and a green salad for a meal that’s easy on your waistline!
Baked (or Grilled) Orange Chicken
2 chicken breasts, halved & skinned
2 tbls frozen orange juice concentrate
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tbls soy sauce
Preheat oven to 375. Place chicken in a pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Mix remaining ingredients together and drizzle over chicken. Bake for 45-50 minutes, basting often (to keep chicken moist). Or grill over medium heat, basting often.
I made this tonight and wrote about it on my blog: http://mealsforreal.blogspot.com/2011/02/baked-or-grilled-orange-chicken.html

Looks delicious and healthy! And even though it’s cold and nasty out there, it will someday be swimsuit season, so…gotta start thinking about that! 😉

Very simple and delicious! Thanks!
I served this a lot. It is a great diet dish. However, I often varied the dish by using Orange-Pineapple juice. Then I would serve hot grilled pineapple with it. Delicious!
This does sound good and pretty healthy too! Thanks for sharing!

Oh wow – thanks!! I’ve always wondered how to make it, and homemade is far better! Looks fantastic.
Yum. I always look for the sweet chicken at the Chinese restaurant. This looks like a great alternative for home.
