  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Place chicken, skin side up, on broiler pan. Bake 25 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat tamari sauce, sugar, vinegar and peel to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to simmer. Beat in orange juice and cornstarch with whisk until well blended. Continue cooking until mixture thickens to glaze-like consistency. Remove from heat.
