Breaded Orange Glazed Chicken

Adopted from Kraft Magazine. A nice change of pace from the standard baked breaded chicken. Usually I don't worry about how to serve a dish but they recommended making a really light dressing and placing the chicken on a bed of spinach leaves with this dressing. It was yummy and I'm glad I took that extra step.

Dinner doesn't get any easier than this, and delicious too. No chopping, fussing -- what a timesaver for a busy night. My son loves crunchy coatings, so I pressed as much coating as I could onto his piece, and put the amount called for in the recipe on mine and DH's. After they were done cooking, I tested both and much preferred the chicken without the double coating. I felt it was moister and I could taste the marmalade a lot more than my son's piece. My husband loved what he called the "tangy and spicy" taste of the dressing on the spinach -- the zesty Italian salad dressing and the orange marmalade work really well together. Thanks for sharing this great recipe that I can count on to please the family and also to get dinner on the table in a jiffy.

I managed to serve 5 adults with this recipe, but then I also used 4 very large chicken breasts & then cut them into thirds ~ Otherwise the recipe was followed right on down, & we had A REALLY GREAT TASTING CHICKEN DINNER! I especially appreciated the combo of marmalade & mandarin oranges! Thanks for a great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a thank you for one of the fellow hosts in the current round of PAC]
