Orange Rosemary Chicken Recipe

This flavorful orange rosemary chicken is fabulous hot or cold! I make a big batch so there are leftovers (which make tasty quesadillas). I move my oven rack to a lower setting to keep the chicken moist, and even then it barely takes 30 minutes.

How To Make Orange Rosemary Chicken

An incredibly flavorful recipe for herbed and marinated chicken! It has the depth of flavor from the smokiness from broiling the meat, but then the infusion of flavor starts with its rich blend of marinade which includes orange juice and rosemary.
