Citrus Chicken with Pears

Sometimes I like to put ingredients together and see what happens. I get an idea from somewhere else and change it to be my own. I was watching Rachel Ray and she made a chicken dish with blood oranges and honey. It looked yummy, but I couldn’t find blood oranges. I’ve been playing with the ingredients and this combination came out yummy. I hope you like it and it gives you ideas to make it your own.


Whole Chicken (skinless & cut up)
Small Onion (minced)
2 Garlic cloves
2 Oranges
1 Lemon
2 Pears (peeled and quartered)
¼ cup Water
Salt & Pepper


Helpful Hints

Heat oven 350 degrees. If using chicken breasts on the bone, place chicken bone side up. Turn chicken during the last 20 minutes of cooking and add extra honey and a little butter. Check to make sure carrots are fork tender and remember to keep basting dish with the citrus juices. 

Try your own variation of this and make it your own. Remember to have fun in the kitchen.
