A light and tangy chicken recipe, with a flavorful orange sauce. I like to cut the chicken into bite-size pieces because it makes it easier to eat (Note:Cooking time may be reduced by about 10 min. if this step is added). Very simple and inexpensive...healthy, too:)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown chicken on all sides in hot oil.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Optional step: Remove chicken from skillet, let cool, and cut into bite-size pieces, then return to skillet.
  4. Arrange onion over chicken.
  5. Combine OJ concentrate, water, brown sugar, parsley, and ginger.
  6. Pour over chicken and onion.
  7. Cover and simmer 35-40 minutes or until chicken is tender.
  8. Serve over hot, cooked rice.

This was very good. I followed the recipe exactly but served it over orange rice (#22503). This really made the dish pop with orange flavor and used up the rest of the frozen concentrated OJ. Thanks Manda

My husband liked this, but I was not very fond of it. My children did not care for it at all. I think it needed a little more orange to it, but it was alright. I will make it again, but will modify it.

Very good and forgiving. I had no ginger, so I skipped the ginger altogether, but it still turned out fabulous! Family loved it. Will have this again and again. Thanks for great recipe.
