Honey-Orange Chicken… in your Buddha Bowl
We know Buddha Bowls have become very popular for their ease and healthy ingredients, and we also know they are usually vegetarian: a grain, a green, and a bean. BUT, do they have to be? We made ours in honor of national honey month with Honey-Orange Chicken – and it was delish! So give it a try – it’s an awesome weekday dinner.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp. canola oil
1 very large orange
3 scallions, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. soy sauce
Preheat oven to 350.
Cut orange in half and juice half the orange. You need 4 tbsp. orange juice. Chop the remaining half of the orange into bite size pieces.
Heat oil in a medium sauce pan, over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic for about 1 minute, until onion just starts to soften. Add the honey, soy sauce, and orange juice. Stir until honey dissolves and let cook for about five minutes.
Place chicken in an oven proof dish. Pour sauce over chicken. Bake for 35 – 45 minutes, until chicken is done. Occasionally baste the top of the chicken with the sauce from the dish.
