Easy Orange Basting Sauce

READY IN: 15mins




  • Peel all oranges. Chop enough of the rind (peelings)to equal 1/2 cup. Discard remaining peelings.
  • Insert your 1/2 cup of orange rind into your food processor.
  • Slice the orange into quarters and place in food processor with the rind.
  • Peel and wash your garlic cloves, then place in food processor. You can save time by purchasing peeled and washed garlic cloves pre-packaged in your produce section.
  • DO NOT use garlic soaked in oil which is sold in a jar in the spices section of your grocery store. The oil is just another fat product.
  • Add all other ingredients to food processor, then puree for about 1 minute until you get a marmalade-like texture.
  • This recipe makes about 24 oz of sauce, which is enough to baste about 12 to 15 pieces of chicken.
  • I usually baste meats at the start time, and again halfway through cooking. Spritzing the meat with a bit of water during cooking keeps it moist and will not affect the flavor of this particular sauce.
