caramelized orange chicken recipe

In a last few weeks i already tried to make:

Sweet caramelized pork with rice

Caramelized sweet beef with rice

and everything was a hit! Not only here, at Berry&Maple, but at my house too. My toddlers were running around kitchen, waiting for their delicious lunch. I even packed leftovers for my daughter preschool, and i know she will enjoy it without even warming up.

I love to use chicken breast in this recipe, but thighs will work well to. Oranges are locally grown, from California. I know its not easy to find local produce, especially in winter time, when farmers markets are closed till spring!

  5. Orange with chicken is such a simple combination – and so good! That looks delicious, and I’m sure your kids love it!

    Here in New York City, a few of our farmer’s markets do stay open all year. A few years ago that meant apples and more apples… but in the last few years they’ve been growing and selling more root and other storage crops. Great to be able to get rutabaga and kohlrabi all winter (and of course, apples…) Still not the same as fresh out of the fields, though.

  10. I live in Southern California, so we have Farmer’s Markets all year long. The size shrinks during the winter months, but they’re always open. I love that I can get fresh, seasonal produce all year long. I often think about people who live on the East Coast who don’t have the same opportunities.

    This recipe looks delicious, and it also sounds much healthier than the stuff we buy at the Chinese fast food places.

  11. My family loves orange chicken and I love that this recipe is quick and easy! Pinned for a future weeknight dinner!
