“Cooking meat with fruits is a special treat. This sauce has NO FAT, NO SODIUM, and NO sugar added, and you can make it a few days ahead and store it in your fridge until you're ready to cook.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel all oranges. Chop enough of the rind (peelings)to equal 1/2 cup. Discard remaining peelings.
  2. Insert your 1/2 cup of orange rind into your food processor.
  3. Slice the orange into quarters and place in food processor with the rind.
  4. Peel and wash your garlic cloves, then place in food processor. You can save time by purchasing peeled and washed garlic cloves pre-packaged in your produce section.
  5. DO NOT use garlic soaked in oil which is sold in a jar in the spices section of your grocery store. The oil is just another fat product.
  6. Add all other ingredients to food processor, then puree for about 1 minute until you get a marmalade-like texture.
  7. This recipe makes about 24 oz of sauce, which is enough to baste about 12 to 15 pieces of chicken.
  8. I usually baste meats at the start time, and again halfway through cooking. Spritzing the meat with a bit of water during cooking keeps it moist and will not affect the flavor of this particular sauce.
