Ingredients (for 2 to 4 servings):
1 Chicken (or favorite pieces)
3 Tbsp. Char Crust® Roto Roast Dry Rub Seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup honey
12 oz. concentrated orange juice, thawed
1 med. can of mandarin oranges
20 small new potatoes, cut in quarters
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray all chicken with no-stick cooking spray (or drizzle with cooking oil), liberally sprinkle with Char Crust® Roto Roast Dry Rub Seasoning and garlic powder, then place in oven-safe baking dish.
Drain syrup from can of mandarin oranges into bowl with the concentrated orange juice. Blend the juice and syrup and pour juice mixture all over chicken. Bake uncovered for half an hour.
After half an hour, add potatoes, baste everything, and then scatter orange sections over the chicken. Cover and bake another half an hour. Then baste again and drizzle with honey. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes or until golden brown and chicken juices run clear. Use meat thermometer for safety. If you wish, broil for a few minutes for crispier skin.
Transfer chicken onto serving platter, and potatoes into a bowl. Then drain pan juices into another bowl and serve.
