This last week was really hectic for me....with increase in workload and exams I could not do the thing that gave me real happiness "COOKING and BLOGGING" :D , all complains apart I am back now ..

I love eating Chicken and since my childhood we have a rule in my house "Chicken every sunday!!!!" and I still follow the rule :) . When I was a kid my uncle would say that if I ate so much of chicken then soon I would dislike it well it didnt happen till now ;) 

My mom would always experiment with chicken dishes and non have ever failed :) . I too enjoy following her footsteps. So today's recipe is also an experiment and turns out that chicken and orange make a pretty good combination :) and forms a good appetizer ....
