Orange Marmalade Chicken with Roasted Asparagus

I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for a while now. I saw it on a commercial and I was excited to try. It’s simple and delicious! The ingredients are below:

  • organic chicken breasts
  • organic orange marmalade
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Pre-heat the over to 400 degrees. I did not measure the amount of marmalade. I simply scooped up as much as I wanted! Mince the garlic and cook it in a frying pan for about 2 to 3 minutes until it softens, and add it in a bowl with the marmalade, olive oil and salt & pepper. Then, line up your chicken breasts in a shallow baking pan covered with foil. Spread your marmalade evenly over the chicken breasts. Bake it in the oven for about 20 minutes.

In another pan, wash and spread the asparagus. Coat with olive oil and dash a little salt & pepper all over. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. You can even bake the chicken and asparagus at the same time. It was my first time cooking asparagus and I LOVED it!


The recipe takes about an hour total, including preparation. I love simple meals with lots of flavor…especially for the working women who want to live healthy! Some days you want to cook, but there just isn’t enough time to dive into an extensive recipe. These are a great choice!
