Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle chicken, both inside and out, with the salt and pepper. Place in 13x9-inch baking dish.
  • Bake 20 min. Reduce heat to 350°F. Brush chicken with honey. Bake an additional 50 min. or until chicken is cooked through (180°F), basting occasionally with the pan juices up until the last 10 min. of the baking time. Let stand 10 min. before serving.
  • Meanwhile, add enough water to orange juice to measure 2 cups; pour into medium saucepan. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Stir in rice; cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 min. Add almonds, cranberries, orange zest and cinnamon; stir. Serve with the chicken.

Serving Suggestion

Balance this special-occasion entrée with smart side dishes. For example, choose a mixed green salad and a hot cooked vegetable.

Keeping it Safe

Never allow cooked chicken to set at room temperature for more than 2 hours. If it is not eaten immediately, cooked chicken should be kept either hot or refrigerated.

    this is awsome chicken. i used season all, black pepper, paprika, and rubbed sage. rubbed that and the honey all over and in the chicken before baking - used a hen. add water to the bottom of the pan and basted every 20 - 30 minutes. kept covered with foil and kept temp at 400. Made long grain rise - 1/4 tsp of orange extract and a splash of olive oil. the pan drippings make an excellent sauce for the rice. we will be eating this again!

    I made the chicken, not the rice. I was a bit skeptical it wouldn't have much flavor but it was very good and so moist.
