Glazed Orange Marmalade Chicken is a tasty baked chicken dish that only takes about 5 minutes to be oven-ready. This one uses orange marmalade, orange juice, fresh ginger, garlic, honey and soy sauce for a sweet and slightly spicy essence that’s basted over the chicken. The refreshing orange sauce is then drizzled over the baked chicken and topped with green onions for a tasty main dish entree you’re sure to enjoy.
I made the glaze rather thin by adding orange juice. But if you prefer a stickier, thicker sauce, then simply omit the orange juice when mixing the sauce ingredients. It’s also good to keep basting the chicken every ten minutes or so during baking time if you’re able, so the chicken will absorb more delicious orange-y flavor.
I served this tasty recipe with Zoodles Parmesan. Both were such quick, easy and simple recipes. I had both casseroles oven-ready in about 10-15 minutes combined. If you enjoy orange-flavored chicken recipes then this one is a terrific entree to try out. The savory flavors will have you hooked from the first bite. 🙂
