Honey Orange Chicken

I obtained this recipe years ago from a neighbor's sweet aunt who was visiting their family. This dish is easy to make and the flavors are quite delicious. I usually serve it with a salad and herb grilled potatoes. Thanks Maxine!

How to Make Honey Orange Chicken


  1. Marinate chicken breasts in the orange juice, 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. Add salt and pepper to bread crumbs. Coat chicken with bread crumbs.
  3. Arrange coated chicken in a shallow casserole dish or baking pan in a single layer. I use a 13 x 9 pan. Put chicken breasts in oven and bake 40 minutes at 325 degrees, starting with a cold oven.
  4. Combine melted butter, honey, and wine. Remove chicken from oven and pour the honey mixture over the chicken. Return dish to oven and cook an additional 30 minutes.
