Orange And Sesame Chicken Recipe

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes to make. It's easy and its affordable! You can make it in the oven or in the summer make it in one of those Nesco Portable Roasters.

Orange & Sesame Chicken Recipe

2 tbsp. sunflower oil
1 whole chicken, 3 1/2 lbs.
2 large oranges
2 small onions, quartered
2 c. whole small carrots, cut into 2" pieces
2/3 c. orange juice
2 tbsp. brandy
2 tbsp. sesame seeds
1 tbsp. cornstarch
salt & pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a large flame-proof casserole dish and saute the chicken, turning occasionally until evenly browned. Cut one orange in half and place the half inside the chicken cavity. Place the chicken in a large deep casserole dish. Arrange the onions and carrots around the chicken. Season well and pour over the orange juice. Cut the remaining oranges into thin wedges and tuck around the chicken in the casserole, among the vegetables. Cover and cook in a preheated oven, 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours or until chicken juices run clear and the chicken is done. Remove the lid and sprinkle brandy and sesame seeds, return to the oven for another 15 minutes. Serve chicken on a platter with the vegetables presented around it.
