Fresh Citrus Chicken is such a delightful chicken dinner, bursting with citrus flavor. Not to mention the health benefits of the added fresh Citrus !

This is another quick and easy recipe. Only a hint of spiciness from the Garlic and Ginger paste, just enough to enhance all the ingredients’ flavors.

The rice actually took longer than the dish itself, and I cook my rice in a rice-cooker which is very quick !

Oranges, and most all other citrus fruits, are high on our list when I do the weekly fresh fruit and vegetable shopping.

We have an awesome market store close to us and they have just about everything a cook needs. With some convenience foods, as in already prepped vegetables, soup mixes and much more, it is no wonder we love shopping there.

The freshly squeezed Lemon juice and the Orange segments work so well with the Chicken, even my kids love this dish, as they did since they were little.

If need be, the recipe can easily be doubled, tripled or more if you have a crowd to feed !
