Enjoy both worlds with this easy recipe. This dish is a cross between orange chicken and lemon chicken. My kids cannot get over this dish! This is an excellent dish for citrus lovers. The chicken is cooked with fresh slices of orange and lemon. The entire thing is drizzled with citrus vinaigrette. For extra depth of flavor, add some fresh herbs on top.
To make this recipe, you can use any chicken parts you have in your fridge. If you want to make a quick veggie side, simply drizzle more olive oil on the pan with chicken and add some cauliflower florets or your preferred veggies halfway through cooking the chicken. Leftovers are also delicious to use for salad toppings the next day.
