I was pleasantly surprised when I made this the first time and this recipe has made it into my favorites book. The flavor the orange peel adds is wonderful. For those on a gluten free diet this is a great choice for dinner!


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In small bowl mix ginger, nutmeg, and pepper.
  3. Sprinkle on both sides of chicken breasts and place in baking dish.
  4. Place sweet potatoes around chicken.
  5. Sprinkle any remaining mixture over chicken and potatoes.
  6. Distribute orange peel over everything, then pour apple juice over all.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes.

My kids LOVE this meal!. I make a few changes but it comes out great. We make the recipe with double the spices and I cut the chicken in strips. We add miracle whip to dip in and it taste great!

Sweet potatoes were dry and tasteless and the chicken was just watery tasting. Preahps I should have left it covered as it baked?
