Menu Mondays

Hello and Happy Monday,

I am busy working on some new designs so I will just share my menu with you for this week. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Orange Rosemary Chicken

"It's fabulous hot or cold. I make a big batch so there are leftovers (which make tasty quesadillas). I move my oven rack to a lower setting to keep the chicken moist, and even then it barely takes 30 minutes."

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (2.5 pound) whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces

DIRECTIONS:

In a medium bowl, mix the orange juice, olive oil, chives, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Place the chicken in the mixture. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator at least 4 hours. Preheat the oven broiler. Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet. Broil 30 minutes in the preheated oven, 6 to 8 inches from heat. Turn and brush frequently with the remaining marinade mixture, until no longer pink and juices run clear.

Have a great week.
Smiles,
Elaine
