Orange Glazed Chicken A Hearty Meal for all of the Family

I ripped this recipe for Orange Glazed Chicken out of a magazine in 1986! That’s 28 years ago, and I still have it along with all of the other oldies. Orange Glazed Chicken is not something that we hear about all that often. It’s nice to try something different every now and then. Some of the ingredients may need to be specially bought. Once you have them, you’re ready to get cooking. I am sure that this will impress both friends and family because it is unusual. So follow the recipe and in next to no time you will have created a meal the whole family will enjoy.
