Baked Chicken with Orange Juice

Ingredients

1 each organic chicken (3 pounds); quartered
—-OR—-
3 pounds organic chicken thighs
3 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/2 cup organic onion; finely chopped
2 tablespoon unsalted butter; cubed
salt and pepper
1 1/2 cup Uncle Matt’s Organic orange juice
1/4 cup organic brown sugar; firmly packed

Directions

Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Rinse and pat dry chicken. Smear the skin with Dijon mustard. Arrange the chicken skin side down in a shallow roasting pan or baking dish just large enough to hold it in a single layer. Sprinkle the pieces with onions, butter, salt and pepper. Pour orange juice around the chicken. Bake, basting once, for 30 minutes. Turn the chicken skin side up and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake until the chicken is tender and golden, 15 to 20 minutes more. Add more orange juice if the pan seems dry. Remove the chicken to a serving platter. Pour the juices into a small saucepan and boil over high heat until syrupy. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.
