BAKED CHICKEN IN ORANGE JUICE IS DEFINITELY A HEALTHY EATING CHICKEN MEAL:
Baked chicken in orange juice is in all aspects a very healthy eating dish because orange juice on its own has super health benefits.
As one Michael D. Ozner, MD, president of the American Heart Association of Miami and the author of the "The Miami Mediterranean diet loose weight and lower your Risk of Heart Disease" says: Or claims that drinking two or three glasses a day of orange juice 'Healthy Heart' would reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke because orange juice is, in fact a healthy juice especially with the pulp, - is super loaded with vitamin C, potassium and folic acid"
In this recipe, there is no need to peel the potatoes before cutting them into the cubes. The skins hold most of the nutrients found in potatoes. You may also substitute sweet potatoes for the white potatoes if you wish.
You can equally substitute pork for the chicken or if you are looking for a vegetarian dish use seitan, a wheat product usually found with the tofu in most supermarkets.
The preparation of this meal is about 15 minutes and the baking time is about 45 minutes. This means that at most within one hour the meal will be ready for eating.
