Spicy Orange Garlic Chicken with salad on plateThis is an easy-to-make orange chicken that's packed with a spicy punch. Marinating it ahead of time really makes it zesty and tender. I used half a chicken for this recipe. It is easy to double for a whole chicken.


Prep Time: 10 minutes plus marinating time

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 3 oranges
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tbsp hot sauce like Sriracha
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • half a chicken cut into pieces


  1. Squeeze juice from the 3 oranges. Grate in zest from 1 or 2 of them. Grate in garlic.
  2. grated garlic in juice & zest of Orange
  3. Stir in hot sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste. I used about 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 a teaspoon of pepper. Mix in oil.
  4. Spicy Orange Garlic marinade in pan
  5. Place chicken in marinade. Cover and leave in fridge for at least 4 hours, up to overnight. Remove from fridge and bring to room temperature. Bake in preheated 375 F oven for about 30 minutes, until internal temperature is 165 F.
  6. chicken added to marinade pan
