“What are we having for dinner?” is the Groundhog Day question I rarely have a ready answer for. You’d think I’d be prepared, since I get it nightly, but too often, the answer is “I don’t know” or “takeout.” Well, Chrissy Teigen — the currently-on-bed-rest, pregnant-with-a-baby-boy, all-around busy mama — has me covered with one of the latest creations from her Cravings website. Teigen shared her One-Skillet Orange Chicken recipe, and it’s a bright, citrusy, maple-y, sweet-and-spicy dinner that takes just 30 minutes to get on the table. And did we mention one pan?

One pan maple-glazed orange chicken! I kept trying to adjust the color on this because I didn’t think you guys would believe it is this bright and beautiful of a dish, but it is!! Serve with some white or brown rice to soak up all that goodness. Link in bio! @cravingsbychrissyteigen
Teigen posted the chicken recipe to her personal Instagram account, writing, “One pan maple-glazed orange chicken! I kept trying to adjust the color on this because I didn’t think you guys would believe it is this bright and beautiful of a dish, but it is!! Serve with some white or brown rice to soak up all that goodness.” It also appeared on the Cravings account: “John’s fried chicken has finally met its match 🍗 This easy weeknight maple and orange–glazed chicken is the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and tangy, and it comes together in one skillet—making cleanup a breeze, too. Pair it with @chrissyteigen‘s bacon & broccoli garlic fried rice and you’ll be like, “Takeout? I don’t know her.” 🍊Recipe link in bio.”
Well. Takeout? I DO know her — intimately — but given Teigen’s history of sharing family-friendly recipes and cooking tips that make our busy-parent lives easier — looking at you, Johnny Tenders, Thai Iced Coffee, and ingredient substitutions — this one sounds like it’ll be another winner, and one that might just help me break my Seamless addiction.
Oh, and if you need a pan to make this one-pan dinner? Teigen’s got you covered there, too. While the gorgeous green enamel skillet used in this photo is no longer available online, you can get her “go-to” cast iron 2-quart Everyday Family Pan.
