DIRECTIONS

  • Position rack in the center of the oven.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix together Dijon mustard, basil and honey.
  • Smear the chicken with this mixture.
  • Arrange chicken, skin side down, in a shallow roasting pan or baking dish just large enough to hold it in a single layer.
  • Sprinkle the pieces with finely chopped onions, bell peppers, butter, salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste and 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon and paprika.
  • Pour orange and pineapple juice around the chicken.
  • Bake, basting once, for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken skin side up, season with salt and pepper, 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon and paprika, and all of brown sugar.
  • Bake until the chicken is tender and golden, about 20 minutes longer.
  • Add more orange juice or pineapple juice if the pan seems dry.
  • Pour the juice into a small saucepan and boil over high heat until it becomes syrupy.
  • Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.
