    Step 1


    1. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, unpeeled crushed garlic (place the garlic on a table and use your hand to press the flat side of the knife against the garlic. The garlic will easily crush under your weight), orange zest, orange juice and bay leaf. Let marinate about one hour.
