RECIPE: Citrus chicken

I wanted to try something different with chicken because usually we have either breaded chicken or BBQ chicken.


What you will need:

1 whole chicken

1 Orange zest and juice

1 Lemon zest and juice

1 tbsp Paprika

1/4 tsp Salt and Pepper

Now let’s get started:

Preheat oven to 400F

Zest both lemon and orange and put the zest in a bowl.


Add the juice of the lemon and orange onto the chicken. Then slice the fruit and add to the baking dish.


Mix paprika, salt and pepper and then add it to the zest.


Now evenly coat the chicken with the mixture.


Now put the chicken in to 400F oven for 1hr 20 minutes.  Every 30 minutes, baste the chicken with the liquid from the orange/lemon in the dish.


All done and ready to eat.  The chicken is so delicious and super moist.  Yummy!
