This was a very yummy dish!! I forgot about the orange juice though and substituted the drained manadarin juice with about 2-3 TBS of lemon juice instead of the regular orange juice and it turned out just great!! Thanks Jill!! Read More

This was very good and I even forgot to put in the mandarin oranges! (I kept eating it thinking "Did I miss something? Well it still tastes good but still...") My only complaint is that I didn't cook up enough chicken! Instead of a garlic and herb seasoning blend I just used garlic powder and what I had in the cabinet that I thought would go well and it still turned out fine! Read More

The only thing I would change would be to cut down on the garlic herb seasoning as it was a bit overpowering. I'd cut it in half. It was also a bit gritty so I think adjusting the seasoning would fix this. Other than that it was great. Read More

Very flavorful and easy vinegarette dressing. I added green onions to the salad for extra taste. This recipe will be used often in our household. Read More

This was great. I had to change a few things just because I didn't have everything I needed. I did not have white wine vinegar on hand so I used a little bit of white vinegar with a little white cooking wine. I also did not gave the garlic and herb seasoning so I used some garlic salt and Italian seasoning. We couldn't grill because it was raining like mad outside so I cooked them in a pan putting half of the sauce mixture in and when I flipped the chicken I poured the rest of the mixture in. It turned out great! We served it with a side of pasta. I will be doing this again soon! Read More
