Rosemary Orange Roasted Chicken

A cinch and delicimo!  Almost zero minutes of prep time and plenty of yummy in the mouth time!  I cook this weekly for The Don and me using la petite George Foreman (not George’s phrase!).  If you have a panini press, that’ll work too!  The recipe is family friendly in size but easily shrinks for a duo!Entree Chicken Orange Rosemary Chicken I

1 stick butter, room temperature
3 Tbs chopped fresh rosemary, divided
1 Tbs minced garlic
Zest of 2 oranges, divided
Juice of 1 orange, divided
1/2 t Hot Shot!
6 chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a small bowl, combine butter, 2 Tbs rosemary, garlic, half of orange zest, 1/4 of orange juice, and Hot Shot!
Rub butter mixture on each breast and place in a baking dish.
Pour remaining orange juice evenly over chicken.
Bake uncovered 40 minutes, basting with pan drippings occasionally.
Garnish with remaining orange zest and rosemary.

Serves 6 – 8.

*Author’s Note: If using the George Foreman grill when cooking for only 1 or 2, adjust the amount of butter and other ingredients, and cook only 6 to 8 minutes.  It’s a cinch!
