Chicken, rice and a nice thick sauce are a great combination that leave you waiting in high anticipation for the dish to cook. An orange sauce is just a perfect match for a chicken dish. This dish uses a lot of spices and ingredients however they work so well together to create an wonderful result.
The chicken thighs provide a juicy base that are initially rubbed in a spice mixture. They are then baked in a beautiful sauce of orange, marmalade and peanut butter which blend together perfectly. The sauce is mixed with brown sugar, fish sauce & tomato sauce which help offset the sweetness. The sauce bursts with orange flavour however it is not overpowering and soaks into the rice that is served with this dish. This is just an amazing chicken dish that will become a firm favourite.
If you would like to ‘spice’ it up a little then add some ground chilli into the sauce. Otherwise it bursts with flavour as is – it’s really your choice.
