Baked Spicy Citrus Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lady-Jay Gray

Easy, different chicken breast recipe that I like to serve with cocounut rice. I like to make this as a reminder or summer flavors during the winter months when I can't use the grill. You can use a dash of red pepper to kick it up a bit. This recipe is also great as a marinade before grilling. Just prepare the dressing mixture and marinade meat in the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling.

This was very easy to make and even easier to clean up afterward. Because this is what I had on hand, I used cayenne pepper instead of chili pepper and fresh squeezed orange juice plus its pulp instead of frozen orange juice concentrate. After tasting the Miracle Whip mixture, I decided to add garlic and herbes de provence. I served Lundberg Jubilee rice and steamed Brussels sprouts with it. I also had one boneless chicken breast and two boneless pork chops on hand. I had to increase the cooking time to 30 minutes. It turned out great.
