Hello beautiful people!

Orange Chicken - perfect for winter|www.andthentherewasfood.co.za

I am SO excited about being back and in full swing with each of you. Reason? I have a new baby and I’m currently using her to share this new recipe with you ↓.

My husband is a bit jealous at the moment, but I’ve never been an Apple girl, so I asked him for his understanding as this bonding time with the new Apple of my eye is crucial 🙂 My HP has passed on, but she’s been good to me for a few years and the struggle with her over the last few days is the reason why I haven’t posted in a while. I apologise! But, like I said, I am back and ready for action.

These drumsticks were marinated in orange juice and with a delicious sauce over them they are now ready for the oven|www.andthentherewasfood.co.za

Today’s recipe includes one of my favourite winter flavours: orange. I normally make this Orange Chicken for a Sunday lunch accompanied by warm roasted veggies. It quick and easy and only requires 30 minutes of marinating for an extra tender meal.
