I cut the chicken into bite or two-bite-sized portions, allowing them to cook nicely. The mandarin oranges and pineapple are two wonderful additions to this sauce, which I've seen and tasted before. **Suggestion: when marinading, do not use the same pan you will place in the oven. A glass pan will need to be room temperature or risk cracking. Waiting for my pan to become room temp ate up time.
Baked chicken pieces combine with a pineapple and orange soy sauce...a delicious taste of the islands!
Yield: Serves 8
- 2 pounds chicken, cut up
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
