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.
