I loooove blood oranges. They’re floral and slightly more bitter than their plain siblings, and they only come out once a year. As soon as I saw them in our grocery store, I bagged 10 of them to take home with me; half have gone into smoothies, and the other leftover few went into this marinade.
Now don’t get all worried if you cant find either Cornish game hens or blood oranges: just use a regular roasting chicken and normal oranges.
There’s no big story for this recipe, it’s just good and easy, maybe even healthy. I start by marinating the chicken overnight, and then while it’s roasting in the oven, I made up a sweet and spicy glaze to be brushed on top.
And dinner is served.
