panko-parmesan chicken with orange marmalade sauceTonight’s dinner fun is a panko-parmesan chicken with orange marmalade glaze with sides of Roasted Garlic Broccoli and Rice. – wish I had wild rice but I didn’t think of it earlier.

I will cover the nearly fully baked Chicken with the glaze and put back in the over for about 5 minutes.

Rice: A simple white rice cooked with just a little butter and maybe some dried orange rind.
