Mom’s Yummy Chicken

Yes…that is the name of this recipe…from my moms recipe box…yummy chicken! So the question of course was..Is it yummy? I had to give it a try & it was! ! Simple ingredients which is always good. The original recipe called for chicken pieces & apple juice. I used bone-in chicken thighs & orange juice since I didn’t have any apple juice..the orange juice was leftover from the Glazed Orange Cake. I recommend you give this chicken a try.

Here is the recipe
