Chicken Naranja

When I first started freezer cooking or Once A Month Cooking, this is one of the first recipes I tried. NOTE: Instead of baking, you can slow cook in crockpot...I usually do!

This chicken is marinated in it's sauce as it defrosts and I would recommend if you are making it the same day to let it marinate for that extra flavor.

It's slightly sweet, tangy and savory at the same time. I served it over egg noodles but it would be delicious over rice as well.

I ended up thickening the sauce slightly with cornstarch, however this isn't necessary.
