Caramel Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by mummamills

embarassed to say I got this from the back of a soup packet, but it is very good. I usually just make a bacon roll and secure that with a toothpick and fry the rolls in a little olive oil til browned. Then take them out and do the chicken in the oil, remove the toothpick and add to the casserole, looks classy :) have to admit that I am way to lazy to do the orange thing :)

Delicious! This is probably one of those recipes that I'd ignore if I saw on the back of a soup pack but it was great and the sauce went perfectly with rice. I made all as directed using the orange zest / juice other than I browned the chicken in butter rather than margarine.
