Are you stuck in a chicken rut? Okay, that sounds a little odd, but you know what I mean. Sometimes we find ourselves making the same chicken recipes over and over and over again. And they’re fine, even delicious, maybe even a family favorite (like my maple mustard chicken!). But still. Aren’t we all on the lookout for our new favorite, a new way to serve chicken? Me. Too.
Lucky for you, today’s recipe is an amazing new chicken recipe. It’s super easy, which means you can make it any ol’ weekday for dinner, but it’s also really easy and delicious, which means you can totally make this for a friday night dinner too! Orange Teriyaki Chicken is kind of a “Orange beef” meets “teriyaki chicken” in one easy dish that’s bound to become a new family favorite. Oh, and that built in side dish? You’re welcome.

- 2 onions, cut in half rings
- 2 sweet potatoes, cut in small chunks
- 1 orange, cut in half slices
- 8 pieces of chicken on the bone, tops or bottoms both work
- ½ cup teriyaki sauce
- ½ cup orange juice
- 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Place onions, orange slices and sweet potatoes on the bottom of a roasting pan. Place chicken pieces on top. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk together all sauce ingredients until smooth. Pour sauce over the chicken. Cover the pan tightly and bake at 350 for an hour.
- Raise the oven temperature to 450 and uncover the pan.
- Baste the chicken with the juices on the bottom of the pan, then bake uncovered for an additional 20 minutes.
- For best results, remove chicken from the pan and return to the oven for 20 minutes, to get the sweet potatoes crispy.
- Plan Ahead:
- This chicken can be frozen in an airtight container.
