Baked chicken with orange

Chicken is one of our favorite ingredients. Both adults and children eat it very well and that is why we always think of recipes in which we can use it, preferably roasted. Today we are going to prepare a baked chicken with orange, a recipe with intense flavor thanks to the marinade in which we will have the chicken for a few hours prior to 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 dish in which we will hardly have stained any pot. Do you want to eat this baked chicken with orange? Well, let's get to work.

How to make baked chicken with orange

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 1 h 30 m
  • Elaboration 10 m
  • Cooking 1 h 20 m

We clean the chicken from down, - especially watch 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 steep 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 dish suitable for baking. 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, slightly separating the potatoes from the central area. We add the chicken broth and almost all the marinade -reserving a little to varnish the skin from time to time-. 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 beautiful golden color. We serve the chicken in the same source, carving on the table accompanying each prey with some potatoes and some pieces of the roasted orange.
