Orange zest, thyme, garlic and Dark Muscovado Sugar give this chicken its fabulous flavour! Mix up your weekday dinners with this simple orange chicken recipe and enjoy the irresistibly sweet and succulent pairing of zesty orange and chicken!
Slice/score each chicken breast 3-4 times and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, orange zest and juice, the Tate & Lyle Dark Muscovado sugar and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
Next time, why not change up your citrus fruit and try this recipe with lemons instead of oranges?
Add the chicken breasts and then add the onion, garlic, thyme leaves and orange slices. Turn to coat, then cover and refrigerate. Leave to marinate for 1-2 hours.
Preheat the grill to medium high. Put the chicken breasts onto a shallow roasting tray and pour over about half the marinade. Grill for about 6-7 minutes.
This orange chicken dish pairs deliciously with rice – particularly egg fried rice.
Turn over and add the remaining marinade. Grill for a further 6-7 minutes until your orange chicken is tender and thoroughly cooked. Check with a sharp knife – the juices should run clear.
Serve your orange chicken garnished with thyme sprigs.
