A recipe for sweet chicken using only basic ingredients like honey, oranges, and sweet potatoes – and no added sugar. The chicken is cooked on the stove, freeing up space in the oven for all the meringues and roasts you’ll be baking.


Main ingredients

  • 1 chicken, quartered

  • salt

  • coarse black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons oil

  • 1 cup orange juice

  • 2 tablespoons Gefen Honey

  • 2 tablespoons Gefen Potato Starch

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon Gefen Cinnamon (optional)

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced (optional)

  • 2 oranges, supremed

Prepare the Chicken


Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper. Add chicken, skin side down, to sauté pan and cook for six to 10 minutes, until chicken is beginning to brown. Turn chicken skin-side up and cook additional five minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.


Add orange juice and honey to the pan. Stir in potato starch, ginger, and cinnamon (optional). Return chicken pieces to the pan. Place sweet potato slices beside and over the chicken. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 75 to 90 minutes. Check the chicken periodically to ensure there is plenty of liquid in the pan to avoid burning.


Before serving, add orange supremes and cook for two to three minutes. Serve hot.
