Do what you will with this Orange Sauce Recipe. Use Marinade, then Cook/Grill, toss Sauce with Cooked/Grilled Chicken Legs/Wings/Breasts. Bake with it. Top over Stir Fry Vegis. Many Endless Options. Here’s one of the MANY ways we use this sauce!

Orange Sauce:
5T TO 6T Orange Marmalade (I did 5T)
1/8tsp McCormick’s Dried Orange Peel
2T TO 3T canned Chipotle in Adobo, minced (I did 3T)
1/4tsp Lemon Juice (Store shelf kind)

1/2c Mandarin Oranges (Top for baking)

Chicken Marinade (1 hour):
3T Vinegar
1/2tsp Chili Powder
1/4tsp Paprika
1/4tsp Sea Salt
1/4tsp Garlic Powder
1/8tsp Ginger Powder

Coleslaw Mix (Optional):
1c Coleslaw mix (Just cabbage NOT sauce!)
3T Carrot, grated
2.5T Sour Cream
1/4tsp Lemon Juice (Store shelf kind)
1/4tsp Dried Cilantro

Toppings: Onions (I skipped), Shell-less Honey Roasted Sunflower Seeds

Marinade chicken for 1 hour. Best time to make orange sauce (Be sure to Mince up chipotles WITH sauce), place aside. Cube Chicken. Brown chicken in skillet (No need to cook through).
Butter Flavor Cooking Spray a baking dish. Add chicken. Toss with sauce. Top with mandarin oranges. Bake in preheated oven at 450 for about 15minutes, uncovered. Toss, bake additional 10-15 minutes, or til done. Allow to cool a minute. Give light mix.
While chicken is baking, mix coleslaw mix. Cover and fridge til done.
Top lettuce wrap OR over Rice (Cooked in chicken broth, then few shakes of pepper.), top with a little coleslaw mix, then toppings. Enjoy.

Notes: Coleslaw mix is optional if using rice option (USE IF DOING WRAPS!!! It’s tasty!).  Option to use Lemon Cilantro Rice cooked in Broth.
Optional- Minced celery can be added to coleslaw mix or to chicken while cooking. Skipping coleslaw mix and just topping over rice. Endless options, options, options.
OPTIONAL to Marinade Chicken Breasts. GRILL. Toss with Sauce!!!
