Crispy Skinned Chicken A'lorange

I got this recipe off of food network, Ten Dollar Dinners with Melissa d'Arabian. I was wanting to try a new chicken dish. This has to be the easiest dish ever. Both my husband and I loved it. The kids were in a picky mode. The only thing I did different was that I couldn't find bone-in, skin-on chicken breast so I used thighs with the bone and skin on.

3 skin-on, bone-in chichen breast halves
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
4 tbsp honey

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Salt and pepper the chicken. Heat the oil in a large, oven safe, saute pan over medium-high heat and sear the chicken, skin side only, until brown and beginning to get crispy, about 5 minutes

Meanwhile, make the orange glaze. In a small saucepan, heat the orange juice concentrate, honey and salt and pepper, to taste, over medium heat, and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Trun the chicken over and brush each piece with the glaze. Transfer the pan to the oven. Bake until and bake until the chicken is done, half way through baking brush on more glaze, about 15 minutes total.

My Girl Paula, Southern Fried Chicken

I have to admit it. This was my FIRST time mkaing fried chicken. I was worried that i was going to under cook it. But it came out perfect. My husband loved it. Even the kids ate it. It is deffently something i am going to make again. I used peanut oil for frying.
2 1/2 lb chicken, cut into pieces
2 cup self-rising flour
1 cup hot red pepper sauce
3 eggs

Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange (about 1 cup). Season the chicken with the House Seasoning. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour. Place the chicken in the preheated oil and fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer than white meat. Approximate cooking time is 13 to 14 minutes for dark meat and 8 to 10 minutes for white meat.
