Here is the recipe:
Sticky Orange Chicken
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon thyme ( I use ground)
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 3 teaspoons paprika
- 1 1/3 tablespoons salt
- 1 roasting chicken
- 1 large orange
Place rinsed and prepared chicken in a container and sprinkle spice mix over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, 12-24 hours later, remove chicken from refrigerator and fill cavity with orange. Put in large roaster with deep sides and roast chicken for 5 hours at 250 degrees. After juices have started to flow, usually about 1 1/2 hours into the cooking, begin basting every 30 minutes or so.
Note from Kris: If you don't have an orange you can substitute lemons or even an onion for a less citrusy flavor. The Pampered Chef deep covered baker is perfect for this.
My husband loves these leftovers in a tortilla with some cheese. In fact he might prefer it this way.
