As a Florida Citrus Grower, I try to include Florida Orange Juice in many of my recipes. The versatility of Florida Orange Juice makes my meals come alive with amazing flavor — just like this recipe, my favorite Herb Chicken. The hearty and easy-to-make meal is great for entertaining friends and family.
- ½ cup (120 ml) Florida Orange Juice
- 1 Florida Orange, sliced
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
- ½ tsp. paprika
- A pinch ground pepper
- ¼ cup of olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- A pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- 10-12 pieces of chicken
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Whisk together Florida Orange Juice, olive oil, garlic, sugar, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, paprika, onion powder, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
Place chicken skin side up in a rimmed 13 X 9 inch baking dish.
Pour mixture over chicken, turning pieces to coat all sides.
Arrange slices of lemon, Florida Orange and onion around and under the chicken.
Sprinkle thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper generously over chicken.
Bake uncovered for about one hour or until chicken is tender.
Garnish cooked chicken with remaining fresh chopped herbs.
