I cook chicken with two sides every week. To make things different, I like to switch up the flavor. I love cooking lemon chicken as well as orange chicken.

Orange chicken is a healthy option for a meal. The citrus from the orange gives the chicken a sweet flavor and leaves it nice and moist.

Here is my recipe for orange chicken.
