Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a bowl, whisk together orange juice, honey, soy sauce, minced garlic, orange zest, grated ginger, salt, and pepper. This luscious glaze will be the heart of your dish.
  3. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side until they develop a beautiful golden color.
  4. Pour the prepared orange glaze over the chicken in the skillet, making sure each piece is coated.
  5. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and let the chicken bake for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  6. While baking, baste the chicken with the glaze from time to time to enhance the flavor and keep it moist.
  7. Once done, remove the skillet from the oven and let the chicken rest for a few minutes before serving.
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.
