This is quite an easy, no fuss recipe to make, and it can be made a day ahead which saves a lot of work on the day you have visitors.

You can use mixed chicken pieces, however, for health reasons I would rather buy without the skin, so I used skinless legs, or lovely legs, and thigh fillets.

I normally like breast meat however I think it would get a bit dry for this recipe.

I made it with potatoes cooked in the same pot, and a salad.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes plus fridge time
Cooking Time: 65 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
1 kg chicken thighs and legs
tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp oil
1 onion, sliced
1 - 2 cloves garlic
1 cup orange juice
cup water
cup sultanas
cup almonds, toasted
2 oranges, peeled and thinly sliced
2 potatoes-partly microwaved

Method
Wash the chicken pieces, and dry with a paper towel. Put them in a bowl and sprinkle with chilli powder and salt and pepper to taste. Toss the chicken to coat well, cover and put in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours for flavours to go through and blend.

Meanwhile make your salad if using. I used sliced red cabbage, crumbled fetta cheese, apple, sundried tomatoes, fresh oranges, field mushroom, and wasabi mayonaise.

Heat the oil and butter in a large saucepan or wok. Add the chicken pieces a few at a time and brown on all sides -about 6 - 8 minutes.

Drain on paper towels.

In the same saucepan, add the garlic and onion and cook till the onion softens -about 5 minutes. Add the orange juice, water, and sultanas.

Bring to the boil, lower heat, cover pan and simmer gently until the chicken is tender -about 40 minutes. Check to make sure it has not boiled dry and if it looks dry add more orange juice.

Add the toasted almonds, and salt and pepper if required.

Garnish with the orange slices before serving.

Would also be nice with boiled brown rice however I only wanted to have one pot to wash up!
