Recipe for israeli chicken stuffed with oranges (off memooleh betapoozim) in our easy ethnic recipes collection. This is an adaptation of a prize-winning recipe from a contest organized by the Israeli Touring Club in Jerusalem many years ago. It combines the most popular and economical ingredients in an israeli meal: citrus fruit and chicken. The chicken can be served with matzo at Passover or with challah, a traditional bread, for a Sabbath meal.
(*) When checking chicken for doneness, it's a good idea to cut it open gently to make sure the meat is white, not pink, all the way through.
