Chicken baked with orange
Chicken is one of our favorite ingredients. It is eaten very well by both adults and children and that is why we always think of recipes in which we can use it, preferably roasted. Today we are going to prepare a chicken in the oven with orange, a recipe with an intense flavor thanks to the marinade in which we will have the chicken for a few hours before cooking.
In addition, we will cook the chicken while simultaneously preparing its garnish: roasted potatoes that will collect the juices of the chicken, the marinade and the flavor of the orange pieces. By doing so we will get a very complete plate in which we will hardly have stained any pot. Would you like to eat this baked chicken with orange? Well, let's get to work.

We clean the chicken of down, -especially monitor the wings and thighs- and put it in a deep dish. We squeeze an orange, add the white wine and a pinch of aromatic herbs and mix to make a marinade. We water the chicken with it and leave it to macerate for an hour. After 30 minutes we turn the chicken so that the other side is also impregnated.
We preheat the oven to 190º with heat up and down. Peel and chop the potatoes into cubes and put them in a baking dish. We cut the other two oranges into slices and each slice into four pieces. We put four or five pieces inside the chicken and distribute the rest among the potatoes.
We place the chicken with the breasts down, moving the potatoes a little away from the central area. Add the chicken broth and most of the marinade - reserving a little to varnish the skin from time to time. We bake for approximately 1 hour and a half, depending on the type of oven.
Every 20 minutes, we turn the chicken, varnishing with the rest of the marinade, to get a nice golden color. We serve the chicken in the same dish, carving on the table accompanying each prey with some potatoes and a few pieces of the roasted orange.
