Orange-Glazed Roast Chicken & Sweet Potatoes
I’m in love with a chicken, specifically this chicken. It screams Spring with its beautifully bright and sunny colors and light flavors. This Orange Glazed Roast Chicken and Sweet Potatoes recipe on my site is a big favorite of mine but I really adore the melding of sweet and citrusy flavors in this quite special dish.
Heat oven to 375°F. In 1-quart saucepan, cook basting sauce ingredients over low heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until marmalade is melted.
In 15x10x1-inch pan, place chicken breasts. Brush with half of the basting sauce. In medium bowl, toss potatoes and onion with oil; place around chicken. Bake 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, soak cranberries in 1/4 cup orange juice.
Brush chicken again with remaining basting sauce. Stir gently to coat vegetables with pan juices. With slotted spoon, sprinkle cranberries over vegetables; drizzle with juice. Bake about 20 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (170°F), and vegetables are tender.
How to make
Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
The marmalade basting sauce delivers great flavor without adding any fat. Try it with pork tenderloin.
Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A and a good source of vitamin C.
