You can use as many chicken breasts or thighs as you need. It is an easy recipe to make and has a pretty glaze when it's done.


  1. Slice halfway through each breast or thigh 3 to 5 times (season with salt and pepper if desired).
  2. Rub a little brown sugar on each piece and place in a 9 x13" pan.
  3. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Pour orange soda over chicken just to cover then bake an additional 30 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken and thicken sauce with cornstarch and water. Serve chicken with sauce on top.

I followed the directions exactly but our sauce turned out extremely runny and the chicken tasted dry. Maybe I did something wrong, but our family was disappointed.

This was a great way to prepare chicken! Our chicken came out very moist and had a nice orange flavor. I do think I may have added a bit too much cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it, but it still turned out pretty good. It was a bit hard to judge how much of everything to use since it wasn't stated in the recipe. I put a liberal amount of the brown sugar on it, and I used 1 mini can of orange soda which almost covered the chicken so I just basted it a few times while cooking. I did end up just putting the sauce in a saucepan and heating it to allow the cornstarch to thicken it up. The chicken also had a nice orange color to it, very pretty to look at. And the sauce looked fantastic on top! We paired this with a teriyaki noodle side and it was the perfect match! Thanks for a great recipe!
