Orange chicken

I really like chicken. It is versitile, like turkey or duck, but richer. This recipe is easy and fast to make, for lunch or dinner. We coat the chicken all at once, not piece by piece, because it´s faster, but you can totally do it like that.

We show you how to do it the easy way. We actually usually make a recipe such as this and eat it that day and the next two days or so, that way we forget about cooking for a few days.
