Make Up Monday- Orange Garlic Chicken

22 Mar

Last week’s Fat Friday was Fun-noli’s our version of a cannoli stuffed with orange chocolate.  The star of that recipe and this one is the orange!  This week’s Make Up Monday is not a sweet treat but it is delicious and made me eager for summer with is crisp citrus flavor!  I can’t wait until it gets a little warmer and I can marinate chicken this way and cook it on the grill!  Bonus this is a pretty quick recipe and has a very unique taste

Orange Garlic Chicken

What you need:

1 pound bonless and skinnless chicken

1 medium orange

1 tablespoon of garlic (I love garlic)

1 teaspoon of tarragon leaves crushed

Dash of salt and pepper

Put it together

Zest the orange

In a bowl mix orange zest, garlic,tarragon, and salt and pepper.

Cut the orange that you zested in half and squeeze over seasoning.

Coat chicken completely and let sit for several hours or over night in the refigerator.

When ready to cook.

Set oven to 350 and bake for 30 minutes or until completely cooked



Serve on a bed of spinach or with other vegetables.

I hope everyone has a good week!

As you are reading this, I am probably sitting in awe at the French Culinary Institute.  I’ll report on that later this week.
