    Bored with the same old baked chicken breasts? This recipe adds a citrus zing that gives white meat tons of flavor, while keeping it succulent and tender. Chicken breasts are topped with orange slices, basted with orange juice, and baked with hearty, inexpensive staples like carrots, celery, and sweet potatoes, which also take on the bright citrus flavor. It’s a crowd pleaser, and kids will love it!
