Chicken – Maple Orange & Pumpkin

Chicken – Maple Orange & Pumpkin

This quick and easy maple orange chicken recipe is pure heaven to eat. The flavours of the maple syrup and orange are absolutely gorgeous together. The pumpkin also goes beautifully with the ingredients in this dish to make a beautifully festive chicken recipe.

This chicken recipe is really easy to put together. You begin by mixing the sauce ingredients and pouring them over the chicken. You then season the pumpkin with cinnamon and place that together with the chicken in the dish. And there you have a quick and easy but flavour packed chickens recipe.

Most people love chicken and it’s often quite difficult to think of a new recipe for chicken. This recipe is a great one to keep because it’s simple to put together and equally great to serve to your family or to serve to guests.

I have remade this recipe already because everyone that ate it absolutely loved it. I hope that you enjoy this chicken recipe as much as we did, Leanne xoxo
