For the Orange Citrus Glaze

1 large navel orange, zested and juiced (1/2 cup)
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup canola oil

For the Chicken

4 boneless skin-on chicken breasts
2 tablespoons canola oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. For the orange citrus glaze: Whisk together the orange juice, orange zest, honey, oregano, sherry vinegar, 2 large pinches of salt and a pinch of pepper. Slowly incorporate the canola oil to create an emulsion. Yield: about 1 cup

2. For the chicken: Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking sheet with foil and set a rack over the sheet.

3. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Coat the chicken with the canola oil and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on the rack set over the baking sheet and roast in the oven until cooked through and the internal temperature is 75°C, 40 to 50 minutes depending on the size of the chicken. In the last 10 minutes of cooking, brush the chicken with 2/3 cup of the orange citrus glaze in 5 minutes intervals.

4. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Reserve the remaining glaze for Roasted Asparagus with Orange Glaze.
