  1. Place chicken pieces in a bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice, cover, and marinate at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Mix the salt, pepper, and paprika in a small bowl, and sprinkle over the chicken. Place chicken in the skillet and quickly brown on all sides. Transfer chicken to a baking dish. Distribute olives, onion, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper evenly in the baking dish. Pour orange juice over all.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until chicken juices run clear.

Cut recipe in half. 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast. Used half green bell pepper & half yellow bell pepper. Had diced black olives in the house. Added 1tbl of cornstarch & 1tbl sugar to thicken the sauce up. Served over white rice. The whole family loved it even the kids!

The chicken came out very tasty and tender, I added some chicken spices to marinate it in for about 3 hours. However, there was too much juice. Should have added some flour or sugar to thicken it up. Serving over rice would also be a good idea.

I probably changed the heart of the recipe by doing this, but I omitted the olives because I didn't have any on hand! Still, I'd never cooked chicken in orange juice with peppers before and it was very good! Made for a sweet, soft chic. Will make the right way next time!

I didn't use a whole chicken, but rather a couple of boneless, skinless breasts so my measurements were a little different and I am not big on exact measurements anyway, but the basic flavor I am sure was the same. Oh, and I had no red pepper so omitted those. I used freshly juiced OJ from my Juiceman and I thought the flavor was very nice. Different, but nice. I think maybe some white rice would have sopped up the sauce very well, but I didn't have any. Never having had Colombian food, I can't comment on that, but overall this was pretty good and easy to make.

This was really good and very different. I used legs and thighs, but it turned out great!

Great, easy dish! I served over rice (which helps soak up the extra orange juice) and pinto beans.

A tangy twist on the standard chicken. Very simple ingredients means I'm not feeding my family a bunch of junk. I sauteed the onions and peppers in olive oil before putting them over the chicken & then served it over brown rice. My husband said I could definitely make that again!
