Orange Teriyaki Chicken

This is adapted from Noreen Giletz’s Meal-Lean-I-Yumm! cookbook:

2 Tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp dried basil
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp sesame oil
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 to 2 tsp minced ginger (I used 1/8 tsp dried ginger)

I doubled the recipe and marinated 3-4 lbs of chicken thighs at room temp for 30 minutes. I baked the chicken at 375F for about an hour and a half, sometimes covered, sometimes not. About 30 minutes into cooking, I removed the chicken and made a bed of diced sweet potatoes, carrots and onions and put the chicken back. Yum! :)
