If you're looking for a quick, easy, and delicious dinner, look no further! Although this orange-glazed chicken recipe looks impressive on the plate, it couldn't be easier. If you think you'll have to spend all day in the kitchen to cook this delicious chicken dinner, we're here to tell you you're wrong. This easy recipe only takes 20 minutes from beginning to end, so it's perfect to serve for dinner on busy weeknights. In addition to short prep time, this recipe also has a short ingredient list, most of which you probably already have on hand. Since the recipe is a little spicy as prepared, if you've got little ones or family members who would prefer their chicken without a kick, leave out the red pepper flakes for a sweeter glaze that highlights the citrus flavors. We recommend serving Lemon-Sauteed Green Beans as the side for this citrus dish and adding fresh lemon slices as a garnish.
