Chicken With Oranges

Posted in Home Made Cooking

Citrus fruits always remind me of winter. Growing in Israel I remember going with my dad to the orange orchard and picking oranges, putting them in my sweater and carrying them home. I love the taste, the smell, the orange blossom. I also think that citrus fruits always give any dish a sort of lightness and freshness. So I figured, why not use it on our Friday dinner?


Chicken With Oranges
Recipe type: Main, Entree
I had some chicken thighs and really didn’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. I also had ½ orange in the fridge, leftovers from the kids’ school snack, and that’s how this dish was born 🙂
  • 6 Chicken Thighs – Boneless and Skinless
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • ½ tbsp Mustard
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 1 Garlic Clove – Minced
  • ½ Orange – Peeled and Cubed
  1. Preheat oven to 400F (200C)
  2. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, mustard, water and garlic.
  3. Cut the chicken thighs into cubes.
  4. Place the chicken in a small Pyrex (heat resistant) dish or in a deep baking pan.
  5. Pour the soy mix over the chicken and add the oranges. Stir the oranges in.
  6. Cover with foil and place in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove the foil while still in the oven and keep on cooking for additional 10-15 minutes.
