Oranges and balsamic vinegar come together in this sticky sauce that beautifully balances sour and sweet and pairs well with chicken.

    Perfect for dinner, as I was defrosting thighs! Served it with broccoli and roasted sweet potato. Made this in my cast iron pan; easy and delicious, BUT, what a mess on my stove top!!! Not sure it needed that initial tablespoon of oil. However, the sauce was so yummy I'll make it again -- but next time I will roast the chicken entirely in the oven and make the final sauce on the stove. Has anyone else tried that?

    I don't recommend using olive oil for high heat cooking. It should never be heated as its molecular structure breaks down and it will create free radicals. I use coconut oil as it has a high-smoke point and retains its taste and structure. Also add a pat of butter and/or some bacon fat which I keep in my freezer for sauteeing green beans, making a roux for gumbo, etc. Kept the juice/fat from sauteeing the thighs as it imparts delicious flavor and nutrients. Put this over rice and it was yummy!

    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.
