    Baked Orange Chicken

    The zesty orange glaze gives a lovely fresh flavour to the chicken portions.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 45 minutes, plus 5 minutes resting time
    • Total time: 1 hour 60 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 3 tbsp Waitrose Wholemilk Natural Bio Yogurt
    • 100ml orange juice
    • 3 tbsp thin cut orange marmalade
    • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
    • 4 fresh chicken leg portions
    • 150ml chicken stock
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. In a shallow bowl, mix the yogurt with the orange juice, marmalade and mustard, then season. Coat the chicken portions thoroughly with this mixture, then transfer to a roasting pan and cook for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, stir half the chicken stock into the remaining glaze.
    2. Remove the chicken from the oven and reduce the heat to 200°C, gas mark 6. Turn the chicken pieces and pour the glaze and stock mixture over them. Return the chicken to the oven for 15 minutes or until cooked: the juices should run clear when the meat is pierced with a skewer. Turn the oven off and leave the chicken to rest for 5 minutes with the oven door open.
    3. Transfer the chicken onto warmed plates. Stir the remaining stock into the roasting pan juices, bring to the boil on the hob, then spoon over the chicken.
