One pot orange chicken and chorizo dinner. Use a large, heavy skillet with deep sides. Sear the chicken breasts until there is a dark char on all sides, then set aside. Sautee the vegetables and chorizo together, blending together the savory and salty flavors, as well as soften the texture. Mix together in the skillet, adding orange juice, and place it in the oven. The vegetables and chorizo will steam into the chicken breast while the orange juice prevents drying out.

  8. Place the pieces of chicken in a cooking dish and pour the broth and vegetables over it.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook in the oven for 35 minutes.
