The chicken came out very tasty and tender I added some chicken spices to marinate it in for about 3 hours. However there was too much juice. Should have added some flour or sugar to thicken it up. Serving over rice would also be a good idea. Read More

I probably changed the heart of the recipe by doing this but I omitted the olives because I didn't have any on hand! Still I'd never cooked chicken in orange juice with peppers before and it was very good! Made for a sweet soft chic. Will make the right way next time! Read More

I didn't use a whole chicken but rather a couple of boneless skinless breasts so my measurements were a little different and I am not big on exact measurements anyway but the basic flavor I am sure was the same. Oh and I had no red pepper so omitted those. I used freshly juiced OJ from my Juiceman and I thought the flavor was very nice. Different but nice. I think maybe some white rice would have sopped up the sauce very well but I didn't have any. Never having had Colombian food I can't comment on that but overall this was pretty good and easy to make. Read More

A tangy twist on the standard chicken. Very simple ingredients means I'm not feeding my family a bunch of junk. I sauteed the onions and peppers in olive oil before putting them over the chicken & then served it over brown rice. My husband said I could definitely make that again! Read More

Great easy dish! I served over rice (which helps soak up the extra orange juice) and pinto beans. Read More

Not much flavor. The skin had a less than desirable texture. The chicken cooked up well though so it wasn't a total loss. But husband ended up eating a bowl of canned soup. Overall not one of the best recipes on here. Read More
