Hello everyone. Welcome to Norah’s Cooking Diary.
This is my second recipe on this website. Please continue to support this website and the youtube channel. Thanks much. :-)
This delicious roast spiced orange chicken dish not only looks beautiful (thanks to the turmeric which gives the chicken a golden colour) but is also packed with wonderful flavour from the citrus and spice combined; and a tangy orange sauce completes the dish.
Several notes here to share with you:
Here is a quick rundown of the recipe:
Debone whole chicken leg. Marinate the chicken with the marinade ingredients. Place in the fridge for 4 hours to overnight.
Remove marinated chicken from fridge. Allow this to rest for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat oven to 180 deg.C (fan-forced oven). Roast chicken in the oven (basting with pan juice after 15 minutes of cooking time) for 40 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
Prepare the orange sauce. Heat up a small pot for 3 minutes on low heat. Sauté (stir fry) shallots, garlic and chicken bones until brown. Add chicken stock, fresh orange juice, dried tangerine and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, simmer for 20 minutes.
Discard chicken bones, shallots, garlic and tangerine. Add rice vinegar, brown sugar and corn flour mixture to orange sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir until sauce thickened to desired consistency.
