1. Place the chicken in a shallow dish. Combine the orange juice and rind, the basil and red-pepper seasoning in a cup. Pour the juice mixture over the chicken; turn to coat the chicken. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.
2. Preheat the oven to moderate (350°).

6. Prepare the Papaya-Orange Dressing.
