DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and cover a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • Squeeze the oranges until you have 3 cups of juice.
  • In a large skillet, combine the juice, molasses and vinegar and bring to a boil over high heat, skimming foam periodically.
  • Boil until you have only about a half cup of thick glaze.
  • This takes 10-15 minutes.
  • Set half the glaze aside in a separate container for serving with the chicken.
  • Place the chicken breast halves on the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper.
  • Brush with glaze.
  • Bake chicken, brushing with glaze two more times, until juices run clear when pierced, 35-40 minutes.
  • Serve chicken hot with reserved glaze.
