Yayyy there is a winner for my contest! But first, I’m going to share a recipe experiment with you 🙂
I remember the first time Cate told me that her mom made a dish called orange chicken I was intrigued. Really, what is this orange chicken? But the first time I tried it, I was hooked!
Her mom’s recipe is a crock pot recipe but I didn’t have as much time and really didn’t feel like waiting! So, I decided to create my own rendition.
The star ingredients: chicken, spinach, mushrooms, French dressing and orange marmalade. I added the spinach and mushrooms for some extra flava, texture and nutrients!
First, I rinsed all the veggies and made sure to pat them dry. Then I threw them on the chicken. There wasn’t too much measuring going on. I used the whole container of mushrooms and half of the bag of spinach.
I then mixed the French dressing and marmalade in a bowl. Again, I eye balled it. I made sure that I did it in a bowl so that I could add as much or as little as I wanted and didn’t regret it after I dumped it all on the chicken.
Then I just made sure that everything was covered! I put it in the oven for 45 minutes at 350°.
Once everything was nice and bubbly I decided that it was finished 🙂
I wound up putting the chicken over some cous cous,which was a good choice. The textures worked really well together!
It reminded me a lot of Cate’s mom’s dish and the veggies were a really tasty addition! I will definitely be trying this again 🙂
