Orange Cumin Chicken

I know I do a lot of chicken recipes. This is basically because I love chicken. I know many post ops have a hard time with it. I couldn't eat chicken for a whole year. The chicken recipes I put up are super moist and easy going down, so give the chicken another try. This one is very different and delicious! It was so moist, it broke apart like fish. This would also be a perfect glaze for fish. We just got home from Florida and brought home a ton of oranges, thus my inspiration!

  • 1-2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (depending on how many people you are serving)

  • 1 cup Tropicana 50 (or any other low sugar OJ)

  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 Tablespoons crushed garlic

  • 2 Tablespoons dried parsley

  • 1 Tablespoon honey

  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder

  • a pinch of salt and pepper

  • 1 whole orange, sliced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Layer chicken in a baking dish. Add all the additional ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour glaze over chicken and cover with plastic wrap. You can marinade over night or just for an hour, it really doesn't matter because the glaze is so good. Leave the chicken in the baking dish with the glaze. Slice up whole orange and lay a slice on top of each piece of chicken. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!
