{December 5, 2008}   Dinner: Chicken with Orange and Rosemary

orange-chicken2This was a quick and easy dinner. The recipe comes from Real Simple magazine (via Zaar, of course!)Chicken with Orange and Rosemary 


As usual, I didn’t exactly follow the directions, but just drizzled on the olive oil, added orange zest, orange juice, minced garlic and dried rosemary. Then I baked the chicken legs until they were cooked through, turning once or twice as they cooked so they would be well coated in the marinade/sauce.

I think this would be a great recipe to use for Once a Month Cooking. And it would be fantastic grilled!! I love orange anything and these were no exception.

I just dump the vinaigrette ingredients in a jar, put the lid on and shake shake shake! Excellent!
