Today we come with an easy recipe of chicken the ideal Orange for the tupper of the school's children. You see, my son eats at school but not in dining room. He prefers to eat food from home so each day prepare you your tupper for the cole. They tend to be foods easy to prepare and eat, but I am not going to lie, much of what I do for you here just on the tuppers, (classmates love when sweets and I find that it is the best way to get rid of as many calories!)

The chicken It is the meat that you eat more at home. and I have a lot of rich recipes because I like really. It seems to me a meat healthy, without fat and very versatile that I prepare a lot of different ways without having to complicate the life of me.

And thus arose this Orange chicken recipe. It was Sunday and Monday played tupper. Is there anything in the freezer from last week? Maybe not because it is the first week of school and still I have not started to prepare lentils, chickpeas and casseroles that every week will accompany you during the autumn and winter.

I have a chicken in the fridge (always buy poultry chickens because there is much difference in quality) and a bag of oranges. The choice was easy: Orange chicken. A few onions and a little honey made magic in this recipe that has become the Queen of the dining room in just twice that they have accompanied my son, so I have another recipe star for the dining room of the cole and otherwise of ago d alone in the oven?!
