Chicken breast is one of the most commonly used part of the chicken as the main ingredient. One of the main reasons why people like to consume chicken breast, compared to other parts of the chicken is due to the fact that it's a great source of lean protein. Aside from the protein-denseness of the chicken breast, it is very flexible on ways how you can cook it. It's very accessible and cheap, and it also offers a wide range of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, niacin, selenium, phosphorus, among others. If consumed in moderation, it can even help with weight loss.

New Orchards have multiple recipes which use chicken as its main ingredient and this recipe is one of them. This particular way of cooking adds extra ingredients like the green peas and mushrooms, a little bit more than what we normally use when baking. This recipe is very quick and easy to make, it might look like it requires a long time, but it doesn't require that much of an effort. The length of time is also because of the resting time while you marinade the chicken. Overall, once you throw the pan into oven and it starts baking, you're pretty much done.

The green peas are great addition to the recipe, aside from its unique and flavorful taste, it also contributes to the texture of the finished dish in this recipe. The mushrooms are also a wonderful addition to the chicken recipe. It's very delicious and provides a lot of health benefits.


  • 2 1/2 lbs boneless chicken breast
  • 1 clove extremely finely chopped
  • 3 very finely chopped Thai pepper
  • 1/2 freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 15 oz green peas (equivalent to 1 can 425 grams of green peas, drain weight 230 g)
  • 1 small finely sliced onion
  • 14 ounces mushroom (equivalent to 1 can 400 grams mushroom)

  1. Prepare marinade sauce by combining salt, pepper, vinegar, oil, onion, garlic, and orange juice.

  2. Marinade chicken breast using large Ziplock for 30 minutes. Carefully press out the air to ensure sauce is surrounding the chicken to infuse flavor to the chicken.

  3. After 30 minutes, preheat oven at 325F (about 160C).

  4. Carefully open the Ziplock bag, add the soy sauce and water. Reseal and gently rock or tilt the bag back and forth. Do it carefully just enough for the water and soy sauce to combine with the marinade sauce.

  5. Afterwards, transfer the chicken and all of the marinade sauce to a 9x13 pan. I used glass pan in this recipe, then add onions.
