If this year you want to set the New Year’s table in a special way, then chicken on an orange pillow is exactly the dish that you should definitely prepare for the holiday.
We have prepared for you the most detailed instructions, thanks to which even the most inept cook will cope with baking chicken.
- 2 tbsp. l. honey
- 2 tbsp. l. olive oil
- 0.5 tsp ground black pepper
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 orange
- 1 chicken carcass
- salt to taste
Rinse the chicken thoroughly and dry it. Then cut along the back of the chicken.
Open the chicken, spreading the pieces from the cut to the sides. Rub the carcass with salt and black pepper on both sides.
Then wash the orange and cut it into several slices. Also peel the garlic and crush the cloves with a wide knife.
Next, cover the baking dish with foil and fix its edges along the walls. Grease the foil with vegetable oil and place the oranges and garlic on it.
Place the chicken on the garlic-orange pillow with the breast on top. Brush the carcass with olive oil using a silicone kitchen brush, then wrap with the edges of the foil and send to the oven preheated to 200 degrees. Bake the chicken for 40 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the oven. Then mix honey and salt in a small deepened container and add 5 tablespoons of juice from the chicken with oranges to the mixture. Fill the chicken with a third of the mixture, then send it back to the oven, raising the temperature to 210 degrees.
Wait 10-15 minutes, then water the chicken again with 1/2 part of the honey mixture, and after the same amount of time after that, repeat this procedure again.
The baked chicken turns out to be very fragrant and juicy. Thanks to the orange and garlic pillow, the meat has an incredibly rich taste.
