Orange and Honey Roasted Chicken

Working our way through the Waitrose weekend paper a while back, we saw this recipe and thought it sounded like our sort of thing.

Needless to say, we didn't *quite* follow the recipe completely... but that's the norm for us!

So, the ingredients we used were:-

500g Chicken Thighs (recipe says 8 drumsticks)
2 blood oranges - zest of both, juice of one
2 Tbsp runny honey
2 Tbsp Tamari sauce
1 Tbsp olive oil

The chicken thighs were placed in an oven proof dish and scored to break through the skin in parts.  Then they were seasoned with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Sous Chef J placed all the sauce ingredients in a glass pot and took a few pics as he liked the layering of liquids.

Once mixed thoroughly, the sauce was poured over the chicken pieces.

Finally, the dish was placed in a pre-heated oven 180ÂșC for 30 minutes until cooked through.  Whilst the oven was on, we also roasted some potatoes and steamed broccoli as accompaniment.
Having prepared the dish, we're pretty sure this would transfer well to being cooked in a slow cooker and that's how we'll make it next time.
