A Sight for Sor(ang)e Eyes


I chose to stay away from a punny name for this because blood and food just doesn’t seem like a funny combo, but there’s nothing funny about how easy and fast this marinade was! Aside from just eating the blood oranges or putting them on a salad (also highly recommended) you should definitely take advantage of their juice and beautiful color! This marinade was super simple and gave the chicken breasts a nice sweet flavor, which was perfect to pair with my sweet potato noodles, which I made with my left over potatoes from the last food box- but guess what? They can be easily switched out for your red potatoes as noodles or cut into slices and baked. This chicken could really lighten up any dish and looks beautiful as a nice cherry on top, or orange on top! And if you already have a marinade you love, just consider switching out your acid with the blood orange.

Servings: 2 chicken breasts

3 cloves of garlic (minced)
¼ cup of olive oil
Juice of 1 blood orange
½ tbsp. of rosemary
½ tbsp. of mint


  • Poke your chicken breast on both sides with a fork to allow the marinade to absorb better
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and place chicken breasts in side
  • Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least 2 hours to make sure it really soaks in
  • Place chicken breasts in pan and pour some of the mixture on top followed by two slices of blood orange
  • Bake on 450 degrees for 20 minutes
