ORANGE CHICKEN


This is very easy to make, versatile, healthy and tasty

1 jar Orange Marmalade
1 bottle Russian Dressing
1 packet of Onion Soup Mix
juice of 1 lemon
8-10 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1-Combine marmalade, dressing,lemon juice and soup mix in a pan over medium heat, until sauce consistency
2- Line a 9x13 baking pan with tin foil and place chicken in pan evenly spaced
3- Pour orange sauce over the chicken and bake for 1 hour at 375 degrees
4-Serve over rice and/or vegetables

-or-

1- cut up chicken breasts or tenders into bite size pieces (1 to 2 inches)
2-season with salt and pepper
3-Heat 1 TBS oil in bottom or skillet pan
4-cook chicken until done (2-3 minutes per side)
5-Spoon chicken over cooked rice and veggies, Then pour orange sauce over chicken, rice , and veggies

I do method 2, my mom does method 1. I also use Low sugar Marmalade by Smukers.
Veggies that go well with this are broccoli, carrots, cabbage bell peppers, snap peas, onion, cauliflower, and water chesnuts.
This is super healthy, Enjoy...
