This chicken recipe is quick, easy, and yummy. The orange juice makes a tangy sauce that my family loves served over rice. Add a salad, and you have a healthy, quick meal. I allow one chicken breast per person.

I thought the sauce was a little bitter so I added some brown sugar and it was fine. I would make this recipe again. Read More

Great Orange flavor--a bit bland-not spicy enough--will add some sort of a hot sauce next time I make it. Read More

I ended up cutting the recipe in half. Cooking for just myself and my husband I knew the recipe would be way too much. In saying that after making the necessary adjustment my husband and I were quite pleased with the out come. Wonderful flavor! I served it with basmati rice. Read More

The sauce was very sweet and I had mixed reviews by the people I served it to. I had all of the ingredients at home so that was a plus! Read More

This was a very easy one to make. The orange sauce complimented the chicken very well but I did not enjoy it over rice. My husband (who is not hard to please!) liked it very much. Instead of making it from scratch again I am keeping the leftover orange sauce for the next time and will just simmer the chicken in it. Read More

I made this tonight 02/04/2011. I was happy with the way it turned out. I read most of the reviews and everyone seemed to say it was lacking something or it was too tangy. I had cooked chicken breasts that had been seasoned with Ms. Dash and I used those. I just started the recipe at the sauce and added the chicken to it until heated through. I tasted the sauce and I did end up adding some brown sugar (2 tbsp) as others did. I doubled the ginger added 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes and 1/4 tsp crushed rosemary. BINGO! Very yummy. I served this with green beans and red skin mashed potatoes. I loved dipping my taters in the sauce. I will make this again! Read More
