Recipe for Orange Sticky Chicken
Chicken, Poultry & Duck


    Orange Sticky Chicken

    1 large roasting chicken
    3 cloves garlic
    1 large orange

    Spice Mix for one chicken
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon thyme
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    2 teaspoons paprika
    1 1/3 tablespoons salt

    Place rinsed and prepared chickens in zip-top bags then rub all over, including cavity, with the garlic. Mix the spices, then sprinkle spice mix over the chicken. Massage the bag to coat coat chicken evenly. Refrigerate overnight.

    Next day (12-24 hours later), remove chicken from refrigerator and fill cavity with a whole orange cut into chunks. Put in large roaster with deep sides and roast chicken 5 hours at 250 degrees F. After juices have formed (about 1 1/2 hours), begin basting every 30 minutes or so (or use a cooking bag).

    To Freeze: This can be frozen with just the spice rub on before cooking, but I prefer to make several of these and cook them completely and freeze fully cooked. Simply bag and freeze. Warm in the microwave before serving.
