Since eating healthy is the entire rave these days, instead of frying your chicken and serving it to your family, why not try fantastic baked chicken recipes instead? Cooking your chicken this way will pack in a ton of flavor without adding cholesterol or fat to your meal. You bet your food will be tasty but at the same time it is good for you!

Prepare the following ingredients: 1 chicken whole or cut up, olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh or dried herbs of your choice, carrots, garlic, onions and your choice of wine.

Season the outside of the chicken with salt and pepper and place inside a baking dish. Rub the chicken with a little bit of olive oil to crisp up the outside while leaving the inside tender and moist.

Place the chicken inside the oven and bake without any cover for an hour to an hour and a half or until the skin of the chicken is golden brown and the meat is cooked through. One way to test if this simple baked chicken recipe is done is to shake hands with the thighs of the chicken. If the thighs feel firm and meaty, your chicken is done.

Impress Your Family With Bistro’s Orange Chicken Recipe

Just follow these easy steps and you will have an Orange Chicken plate as good as your favorite bistros:

  1. For this easy orange chicken recipe, you will need to grab the following ingredients: 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flour, 2-3 T oil, 4 minced garlic cloves, 4-6 chopped green onions, 3 T soy sauce, 3 T orange juice concentrate, ½ c sugar, and ½ c vinegar.
  2. The first thing that you need to do is to chop the chicken breasts into bite size pieces and seasoned it with some salt and pepper, then coat it with flour. If you want to make coating the chicken faster, instead of turning one after the other on a bowl with flour, just throw the entire thing on a large self sealing bag and give it a good shake to coat every single piece.
  3. Once all the chicken have been coated  with flour, heat a little bit of oil in a pan and add your chicken in. Heat it through until it turns brown.
  4. Add the garlic and green onion to the pan and sauté them until soft and tender. You might need to add more oil to your pan at this point to cook your orange chicken recipe. For additional flavor, you can also add some orange rind and peppers, but these are optional. If you like intense flavors though, be sure to go for it.
  5. The next thing that you need to do is to add the liquid part of the orange chicken recipe. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, and orange juice concentrate to the mix, plus the sugar. Stir it constantly and mix all of the ingredients together. Make sure that all pieces of the chicken are coated with the mixture and cook it through until it is just good and bubbly.
  6. This is fantastic when you serve it on top of a piping bowl of rice and enjoy a home cooked orange chicken meal! If you do not want rice however, you can also serve this with some noodles to make a stir fry version and it will taste just as delicious as you favorite orange chicken recipes from the big bistros!
