This is a really good recipe. The only thing I added to it was 1 tbsp. of orange zest & fresh parsley for garnish. Everyone cleaned their plate with a smile! Read More

I made this recipe because it was so easy and quick but I didn't really care for the results. The kids ate it fine and my husband liked it but I thought it was very bland. I was hoping to taste the orange juice but all you could really taste was the chili powder. May try this again but with some additional ingredients like orange marmalade or frozen orange concentrate.

Very good result from this recipe. I would suggest adding a bit more chili powder as the sweetness of the orange juice almost over powers the spicy of the chili. Read More

This was tasty.. I think I would marinate this some of the sauce to infuse more flavor... good hot and cold! Read More

I tweaked this totally - have to call it Golden Chili Chicken Alfredo. I used it w/whole wheat penne pasta that I boiled up w/frozen peas corn & carrots. Drained and mixed in a creamy alfredo sauce and kept warm on low heat. I finely chopped the onions added chopped celery and sauteed those 'til soft then added the parsley salt & chili powder. Let that saute for a few more minutes then added two cooked & cubed chicken breasts. Instead of orange juice I used chicken broth added in about 1/4 C. orange marmalade and a squirt of lime juice and let it all simmer for 30 minutes. Added that to my pasta & alfredo saude and it was great. Read More

I made this pretty much without tweaking. The chicken was perfectly cooked moist and tender. The sauce was pleasant but had a very mild flavor--there is no "pop" to the flavor although you would think with orange juice and chili you'd get something zesty. My husband found it bland. I kind of liked it in more of a comfort food way. Read More
