Orange and Thyme Chicken Recipe.
The sweetness makes this recipe a great one for kids – well, that and the fact that you can put it on the table almost as soon as they get hungry. Try it with some sweet potato fries for a kid-friendly finger food, and maybe some oven-roasted cauliflower for a non-starchy vegetable.
