We determine which (ordinary) Riordan arrays are the coefficient arrays of a family of orthogonal polynomials. In so doing, we are led to introduce a family of polynomi- als, which includes the Boubaker polynomials, and a scaled version of the Chebyshev polynomials, using the techniques of Riordan arrays. We classify these polynomials in terms of the Chebyshev polynomials of the first and second kinds. We also exam- ine the Hankel transforms of sequences associated with the inverse of the polynomial coefficient arrays, including the associated moment sequences.
