Orange Chicken Recipe - (Main Dishes, Chicken)


2 whole chicken breasts (boneless & skinless)
2 tablespoons butter (or margarine, melted, butter is better)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 cup onion (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon rosemary (dried & crushed)
Pinch of black pepper
1 cup orange juice
1 orange rind (finely grated)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

*If you like a sweeter recipe add 2 teaspoons of sugar to the process, but the sugar in the orange juice will provide a hint of sweetness that works well.


Arrange the chicken breasts in a shallow 13x9 baking dish. Drizzle melted butter over the chicken breasts, and sprinkle with the paprika. Combine the onion, salt, rosemary, pepper, orange juice, orange rind, cornstarch, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour it over the chicken. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes or until tender. Baste the chicken occasionally with the pan juice.

My Thoughts For Today:

Fake mouse prank!

My manager is terrified of mice, especially dead mice. We all have fears but this particular fear is crippling for my boss. My co-workers created this fake mouse and decided to present it to her. I was not involved in this but didn't want to miss the expression on my boss's face when she saw it.

One co-worker carefully held the fake mouse and began walking towards my boss in the breakroom. My boss raised an eyebrow and asked "What do you have in your hands?" in a suspecting tone. She got a tiny peek at the fake mouse and sprang from her chair in a panic kicking and screaming.

Even after she found out it was fake she still wanted nothing to do with it. I admit this is not a nice thing to do to a person who is afraid of mice. In our daily work, and during break time, we try to make the work environment fun. It gives us entertaining memories to recall.

For any of my employers who may read this, the mouse was made from trash material and not on company time. Also, no mice were harmed in the making of this joke.

Keep on cooking!
