Orange Glazed Chicken

pbServing size: 1 breast or thigh/b/p
h2Chef’s Note/h2
pThis recipe works just as well using the breast or thigh of the chicken. Cold, this also makes “killer” chicken salad. If you prefer NOT to use the lower carb orange juice, you can use an orange infused olive oil in its place. /p
