Simple Orange Chicken
Serves: 4 servings
  • 6 chicken thighs, skinless, deboned, cut in half
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • ½ can (295ml can) frozen concentrated orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard mixed with ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup Grand Marnier (optional)
  • ½ cup green onions, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
Seasoned Flour
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Add Seasoned Flour ingredients to a re-sealable bag. Add chicken pieces and toss to coat – you may need to do this in two batches.
  3. Add oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken pieces 2 minutes on each side. Remove to a 9” x 12” baking dish.
  4. To the same skillet, (if it’s too brown give it a quick wipe with paper towel), add orange juice, Dijon mixture and Grand Marnier, if using. Whisk to combine well. Bring to a boil for 1 minute then pour over chicken. Cover baking dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
  5. Serve over cooked rice topped with sliced green onions and a few sesame seeds.
