Baked Orange Chicken

Simple chicken dishes rarely taste as good as Orange chicken. Instead of frying, make healthy chicken dishes using your oven. For moist boneless chicken breast and a healthy meal, try this recipe.

Notes

One does not have to flame the chicken. If you wish, use the remaining 1/4 cup orange liquor to baste the roasting chicken.

What an interesting recipe. I have never stuffed any poultry with orange stuffing and flavoring. I have a recipe where the orange pieces and glazing are baked on the outside of the chicken. I will have to give this version a try.

What a brilliant idea! Look forward to trying this one!!
