Orange and Balsamic Chicken

Source: Everyday Food, November 2010

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 unpeeled orange, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add chicken, skin side down, and cook until golden and crisp, 7 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and pour off fat from skillet. Return chicken, skin side up, to skillet and transfer to oven. Bake until cooked through, 10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.

  2. Heat skillet over medium and add vinegar and orange wedges. Cook, stirring and scraping up browned bits with a wooden spoon, until orange begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter. To serve, return chicken to skillet and toss with orange and sauce.

    Made this recipe and the family loved it. Would have loved more sauce. I used thighs and they were juicy and tender. Will make this again.

    I made this tonight and did not quite read the recipe through. I was in a hurry and ended up using leg and thigh quarters. While it did end up needing extra time in the oven, it did come out well. It was a HUGE hit for my family.

    I've made this a couple of times -- first with clementines and drumsticks, and the second according to the recipe -- and both turned out really well. My husband really enjoyed this recipe!

    This was delicious, although I cooked my chicken longer in the oven since I think my pieces may have been larger than the ones Sarah used. The skin was super crispy, and the chicken thighs were very juicy . A quick nd easy recipe.

    Very tasty, but balance it out with some healthier sides, like brown rice and veggies. Mine always needs longer to cook, in each stage. I use my cast iron skillet, which works like a charm. My kids love the flavor, but it takes some doing to get them past the skin & the bones!

    this has become a staple. we serve this over rice like a rice bowl. Yum! also, we toss in some chunks of orange for a nice refreshing bite.
