Perfect Pineapple Orange Chicken Recipe
- 1 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken, rinsed
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- ½ cup pineapple juice
- ½ cup orange juice
- salt and pepper to taste
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
step 2: Place rinsed and dried chicken on a tray. Rub butter all over the chicken, top and bottom, then season evenly with salt and pepper to taste.
step 3: Pour the pineapple juice and orange juice in the tray, not directly over the chicken.
step 4: Bake chicken uncovered in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, basting every 5 to 10 minutes with the juices. When it is done it should be a perfect golden brown.
