One Pot Orange Chicken

I love one pot meals! It means less work in the kitchen and more time doing other things (like doing more laundry…ugh, seriously how much clothes can tiny little bodies go through?!?) Here’s a simple meal sure to please everyone!

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:
4 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, cut into 1-inch slices
2 medium celery stalks, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium red onion, sliced
4 (4-oz.) each raw chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
¼ cup 100% orange juice (or juice of 2 medium navel oranges)
½ cup water
2 medium navel oranges, peeled, chopped
2 fresh rosemary sprigs
Sea salt and ground black pepper (to taste; optional)

Preparation:
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Place carrots, sweet potatoes, celery, onion, and chicken in large oven-proof roasting pan.
3. Top with orange juice, water, oranges, rosemary, salt (if desired), and pepper (if desired).
4. Bake, basting occasionally, for 35 to 50 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle and juices run clear.

Tip: This dish can also be prepared in a slow cooker. Layer all ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook for about 4 hours on high, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle and juices run clear.
