ORANGE GLAZED BONE-IN CHICKEN BREASTS

6 bone-in chicken breasts
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup orange juice
1 tbsp paprika
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1 orange for garnish, if desired.

Place the chicken breasts in a shallow pan and set aside while you make the marinade.

In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, orange juice, paprika, garlic, hot pepper sauce and oil. Reserve approximately 1/3 of the marinade to use later. Pour the remaining marinade over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate. Allow to marinate 10 to 15 minutes. Preheat broiler. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade left in the dish. Place chicken breasts, skin side down, on a broiler pan. Brush with some of the reserved marinade. Broil for approximately 15 minutes, basting twice during that time. Turn chicken and broil, basting several times, for another 12 to 15 minutes. Arrange chicken on a serving platter. Place orange sections or thin orange slices around the platter for garnish, if desired.
