Excellent, tasty recipe. I used large boneless breasts, and added 1/4 cup of orange marmalade, as suggested by another cook. I also added 1 tablespoon of dried minced onion. Tender and tangy. I served it with potatoes au gratin, and a romaine and cucumber salad tossed in lemon olive oil. Nice combination. Will definitely make this one again. Can't wait to try it on the grille, too.Read More
This was just ok. To me it was to sweet but thats just me. I only used half the oregano called for but you could still taste it. I guess it just wasn't my thing. I used thin chicken breast and they came out very tender maybe it would be better with bone in chicken?Read More

Great. Marinated overnight and then the next day added the soy sauce and honey 30 mins prior to baking. Added other spices such as onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, fresh onions, etc.
I made this with a whole chicken and it turned out nicely.
Tangy and tasty. Like another reviewer I, too, used the marinade on 4 boneless breasts instead of a whole chicken. I would like to try it with a whole chicken because I suspect it would be more juicy. But my boyfriend says he doesn't care much for anything but the boneless breasts...oh well. Anyhow, it's still good and we agreed we'd both like to eat it again. I took the suggestion of another reviewer and added a tablespoon of dried minced onion. On my next try, I will add the marmalade as suggested and that should liven up the slight dryness of the boneless breasts. If using the skinless, boneless breasts, I think the dish is best enjoyed fresh and not as a leftover. But I would even make it again anyhow. I served mine with fettucini alfredo.
Hit with the kids and hubby. I marinated this overnight and added 1/4c. of Rum to marinade and used chicken breasts it turned out very tender and DELICIOUS!!
Excellent marinade! I really liked this. Watch the cook time, though, my chicken breasts were somewhat thin and came out a bit chewy. I doubled the marinade to be sure I'd have plenty left over to make into sauce, and it was perfect! Thanks!
I really enjoyed this recipe. I used b/s chicken breasts, o.j. concentrate rather than orange juice and I added some marmelade. I cooked it on top of the stove and thickened the sauce with cornstarch after the chicken was done. Served with brown rice. It's going into my "favorites" file.
This recipe gives a good flavor to baked chicken pieces. I added fresh, ground ginger and a little orange marmalade. Very good!
This was really great! I used orange juice concentrate to increase the orange flavor, and some red pepper flakes to kick it up a notch. Perfect served over rice, using extra sauce as a gravy.
We make this chicken so often I now scale the recipe to 20 servings, buy a very large pack of boneless skinless chicken breast, fill small freezer bags with 3 chicken breast (to suite my families needs) and then fill the bag with marinade. Then we have a moist and delicious entree on hand. Just pull out of the freezer and thaw in fridge or defrost in microwave. Wonderful!!!
This is great! I marinated my chicken in Orange juice, honey, and cut garlic cloves for about 3 hours before I baked it. Then, when I baked it I just coated each strip in honey, sprinkled the herbs and pinned the oranges on with toothpicks. Just pour your marinade in with it to let it simmer while baking to add that extra flavor.
This was really good. I did goof though. I cut up the chicken breasts instead of leaving whole pieces. Read the recipe too fast. Still turned out excellent. Just adjusted cooking time to 30 min. Sauce was delicious also. So, if you want to try this recipe and make it FAST, cut chicken breasts in 1 inch pieces, put everything in pyrex and bake at 350 for 30 min. Served it with steamed broccoli and wedged parmasean potatoes. The sauce complimented the broccoli well. Might try adding some nuts to the chicken for some crunch. Thanks for the recipe.
This has a good taste, but it could be cooked 1 hour instead of 1 1/2. It was dry after that long.
Just the right amount of sweet and tangy. Will amke again
Very nice recipe! I use just thighs and drumsticks and add 2 more cloves of garlic. I put it all in a Ziploc for a day or 2 in the fridge--turning it every 8-12 hours and then during the week I have a quick and easy meal by just making rice and broccoli to go with it. By marinating 2-3 days, the meat is really tender and full of flavor.
This made a good dinner. I used 3 breast halves, but there was enough marinade for at least 4. I baked it for 45 minutes and it came out tender. I simmered the marinade from the baking pan on the stove with 1 rounded tsp. of cornstarch to make a nice sauce. Served it over rice. I did make one change to the ingredients - used 1/4 cup OJ concentrate instead of regular OJ. My kids ate it up.
This was just ok. To me it was to sweet but thats just me. I only used half the oregano called for but you could still taste it. I guess it just wasn't my thing. I used thin chicken breast and they came out very tender maybe it would be better with bone in chicken?
It was good, but not my favorite. My boyfriend seemed to really like it though. I doubt I'll make it again. If I do make it again I would nix the soy sauce and maybe add pineapple juice instead.
Pretty good. I used the chicken strips to top a salad.
This was a great quick marinade. Chicken was delicious.
Excellent recipe, my family loved it. The sauce was thin and it needed more orange juice. I did add minced onion and a little red pepper flakes like the other reviews suggested. I will make it again.
Loved this chicken. I left out the oregano & doubled the marinade, paired it with the carrot rice & quick sesame green beans. I put some of the marinade over the rice, my whole family loved it...
VERY GOOD! My husband and I both liked it, which is almost unheard of. Putting this one in our "family favorites" section of my cookbook. 5 STARS!
Excellent adn erasy to make, my family said repeat meal...
I recently made this dish and my family loved it. Tonight, I asked my family what they wanted for dinner and my semi-picky 6 y.o. son said he wanted that yummy garlic chicken for dinner. I was shocked, but we're having it tonight. It's great. I have been using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, for ease and quickness. Also, for those of you who have the vacuum sealing machines, this works great. I just put the marinade in my container, throw the chicken in and seal it up. It marinates between 20 & 30 minutes instead of 2-4 hours. Thanks for the great chicken, Leah!
I used pheasant breast instead of chicken. Work beautifully. Watch cook time as others have said. I go by internal temp of the meat rather than a certain time for cooking.
Doubled the marinade, doubled the garlic, and used only chicken breasts. AMAZING.
I decided to make this based on all the good reviews. I followed the ingredients and directions exactly. This tasted like I used a store bought marinade. The oregano just didn't taste like it belonged in this recipe. My children and husband didn't care for it either. I definitely won’t be making this again.
I pan fried this great recipe. Fried thighs and strips until slightly browned on both sides. Then let it simmer in the sauce turning several times. Added more fresh squeezed orange juice. A little too salty, I didn't measure the soy. Next time I will double the sauce and taste test the soy before doubling it. I loved the flavor.
I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts and reduced the cook time to 1 hour. The meat was juicy and tender and overall tasted great! Next time, I'd like to try a couple of suggestions from previous cooks. Thanks for sharing!
I would love to have some sauce to go with it. Maybe boil some extra marinade and thicken it.
I omitted oregano and added a little oyster sauce. Family like it, I would make it again.
Very good!! I used skinless, boneless breasts like always. Baked about 45 minutes, but would go for 35-40 next time. A good low carb choice.
Tasty! This has so much flavor! I did not cook the chicken for 1-1/2 hours, I feel that is too long to cook chicken for. I suggest 30 minutes at 375.came out very juicy and tender. I did add the marmalade and fresh chopped onions, and sauteed the garlic before adding to marinade. This combination made a yummy orangey glaze that was de-lish! Will make again!
Not enough flavor for our family.
I used chicken breast tenderloins instead of a whole chicken (it's what we had in our fridge), and cooked it for 1 hour instead of 1 1/2 hours. It was very tangy, and my boyfriend loved it!
This was pretty good. Next time, I think I'll try it with the orange marmalade, as other reviewers have suggested.
I was the only one who ate this and I did enjoy it but wish there would have been more of an orange taste. Maybe using concentrate instead of orange juice would help. I used garlic powder instead of cloves and used tenderloins rather than a whole chicken. I was pressed for time so I wasn't able to let this marinate but enjoyed it all the same. Thanks Leah.
Great dish husband loved it! Will be making it again
Tasted excellent. Would give a 5 star rating if I didn't change things. I reduced the soy sauce to 2 tbsp so that I could actually taste the orange juice, and I added dashes of onion and garlic powder. Served over rice with broccoli and it was delicious.
I loved the marinade! I chose to use chicken breast rather than a whole chicken, though, so that cut down on cook time. 30-45 minutes at most, since you don't want to dry out the meat. I've made this a few times now, and it's always delicious. Sometimes I double up on the OJ, but it's tasty with the original recipe, too!
pretty tasteless and bland
Simple to mix up and bake! I had a delicious orange chicken dish years ago, I've been looking for a similar recipe and this is the closest I've come to it yet. It might even be better!
Easy and tasty. Unfortunately the night I made this, as it was marinating,,,ALL THE LIGHTS AND POWER WENT OUT!! Yes, the Blackout of 2003!! But, I was able to cook this on the grill!! It had a nice flavor but I am sure it is much better baked in the oven, will have to try it again!! Thanks!
It's a great recipe for potato lovers. I was especially fond of the flavor that the mayonaise provided. It was a unique change from the regular potato dishes that I usually make....
My husband enjoyed this...it didn't do much for me...I will try it again though and make sure I did everything right!
Very good chicken recipe! I used boneless skinless breasts and baked them right in the marinade. It came out juicy and very flavorful!! I will be making this one again, Thanks
This was very nice. I used chicken breasts cut up into pieces and doubled the marinade as I prefer more sauce to go over rice. A very easy and healthy dish.
very good. I made it along with another recipe from saladrecipe.com called Bodacious Broccoli Salad. I think they complimented each other pretty well. I used this marinade on 4 chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken. However, the bone-in chicken (as the recipe calls for) would be more juicy.
Marinade is awesome! Not too sweet, and made the chicken turn golden brown and crispy skin on top in the oven. I HIGHLY recommend using chicken with bone and skin on. I noticed from other reviews that people complained their chicken came out too dry and I think it's because they used skinless and boneless chicken which will dry out super fast in the oven even if you double the marinade, etc. I baked the chicken with potatoes, carrots, and onions but I wish I had fresh veggies to go as a side instead. Definitely will try this recipe again soon!
We enjoyed the recipe, I used chicken breast instead of the whole chicken. I didn't like the oregano, so next time will probably skip it. Served with rice and veges was a good warm meal.
Oh yummy! This goes on our family's must have every few weeks list. Thanks!
THIS IS HEAVENLY! The only change I made was to use Italian seasoning instead of the oregano. I doubled the sauce, marinated with half, and baked with half. I will be serving this as the main dish for my first Christmas hosting the in-laws as a newlywed. IT'S THAT GOOD.
I think I marinated too long (overnight) because the orange flavor was mostly lost in the soy flavor. I'll try again re-rate this. It was good though.
This recipe yielded a very mildly flavored chicken. I was hoping for something with more "bang for my buck." If I make this again, I will definitely add more garlic and something like red pepper flakes to add some flavor.
This is not what I expected. The marinade was too thin and didn't really stay on the chicken. Maybe if I had thickened it and poured it on the chicken it would have been better. I Couldn't really taste the orange juice or honey.
Followed recipe exactly except grilled the chicken pieces. Chicken turned out nicely but not spectacular.
I thought this recipe was great. The chicken was so tender and the marinade added just the right flavour. Tastes great served over rice!
Made this with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Doubled the recipe because the breasts were ginormous, I had to butterfly them. Used oj concentrate instead of juice, didn't want to spend $ on marmalade, (since I don't like it and would never use it after the recipe) like others did. Only had 2 garlic cloves, I definitely would like to have had more garlic. I will add fresh ginger next time and am looking forward to trying it as a grilling marinade. Family liked it probably more than I did. I'll make it again.
This recipe was pretty good. I used 5 chicken breasts cut into bite sized cubes, used just orange concentrate and actually doubled the marinade recipe to have some more sauce with the chicken. It wasn't quite as 'orangey' as I hoped it would be, but still pretty good. I served it over steamed white rice and found that putting some soy sauce over the cooked mix actually brought out a little more orange flavor. thanks for the recipe!
I was really disappointed in this dish. It looked much better than it tasted. I did make a few changes. I used chicken breast tenders cut into pieces, which turned out nice and juicy. However, I took the advice of another reviewer and used orange marmalade instead of orange juice, and it turned out too orangey. I'm not sure if I'll make this again, but if I do I will use more honey, which I could not taste at all this time.
Very watery and though I followed it exactly, it tasted rather bland. I think I might try this pan fried or grilled next time, but baking really didn't work out so well.
Very easy and full of flavor. I mixed the marinade and added it to a ziploc bag with a couple of frozen chicken breasts. Let it defrost and marinate in the refrigerator overnight. The only suggestion I would make to the marinade is to add a bit more orange juice and honey to balance the soy sauce. I baked the boneless, skinless chicken at 350 for about 20 minutes covered and 15 minutes uncovered, basting several times.
Couldn't taste the orange or honey at all. Next time I'll halve the soy sauce and double the orange juice and honey.
This marinade was good. It was not a 5 star, but still good. It is simple to make and similar to a sweet and sour chicken or any other type of teriyaki/soy marinade. I'll make it again though, because it was so easy and was just different enough to make making it worthwhile.
This is a good recipe, but I like to use chicken breast instead of bone in. I added zest from a whole orange and used a cube of garlic AND 2 fresh cloves of garlic. Also I added 2 dashes of powdered red pepper, and 2 dashes of salt. It turned out wonderful, very citrusy and flavorful. I served it over white rice and served with fresh steamed veggies. Very healthy and tasty!
Very good recipe. I didn't have orange juice, but I did have mandarin oranges. I used this juice and chopped up the oranges. Served with white rice. Was good the next day as well.
I don't care for dark meat but I picked up some drumsticks on sale in hopes of finding something to do with them. THIS IS IT!!!!! I marinated them for 24 hours using this recipe and then baked them at 375 for an hour in the marinade. They turned out so flavorful and moist. I can't wait to make them again.
Not a hit at our house. My 6 year old said that it had a weird spice.
very good didn't make any changes
i thought the taste was kind of lacking, and not what i expected (couldnt taste much orange or honey), but my boyfriend loved this recipe. It wasnt bad, but it wasnt what i had been expected.
You might want to cook this covered as the skins burned before the rest was done.
Yum, yum, yum! Smells wonderful baking and tasted excellent. Juicy, tender, delectable. My only complaint is that the chicken was getting a bit crispy on top, but that's only a small complaint as we like it that way! Next time, I want to try this on the grill!
I love this recipe. It is so easy to prepare and has a wonderful flavor. I agree with some of the other comments that it is a bit watery in the dish, maybe cooking it on a rack would help. We will be making this again!
Very yummy and healthy. I'm always on the lookout for healthy yet tasty ways to make chicken. Thanks! Oh, and adding some marmalade does really jazz it up a bit.
E-Z and tasteful
I made this recipe the other night, it was great tasting and easy to make. Definately a do over. Leftovers were even good.
Cut up chicken into chunks and put them on skewers for the grill. I liked the flavor but the chicken itself was a little dry. I liked the flavor enough to try it again with a different cooking method.
Used orange marmalade instead of juice and added minced onion as suggested in reviews. Made an extra batch of the marinade and drizzled over rice. It was delicious!! My boyfriend and I loved it, will be making this again!
I loved this recipe!!! I made very few changes. I had no fresh garlic so I used a teaspoon of garlic powder. I do not like oregano so I left it out. I also left the chicken whole. I injected the chicken with some of the marinade and then baked at 325 for 2 hours, basting every twenty minutes. I really had trouble distinguishing the taste of oranges in the chicken which was great since I didnt want an overpowering flavor of oranges. I will be making this again.
I made the marinade and let the chicken sit in it overnite. Then my hubby grilled it, instead of baking, absolutely wonderful! I did add the orange marmalade to the marinade, and it was less sweet than I expected, perfect!!
It seemed more soy sauce than orange and honey. That however, could be because as Asians, our standard soy sauce is stronger in intensity than Western soy sauces, I think. Other than that warning, quite an easy recipe to make, with ingredients that are relatively affordable worldwide.
This was just ok. I think it could use more honey. My roommate liked it though.
I made this recipe with two large chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken, doubled the garlic and marinated it over night. It wasn't one of my favorite chicken recipes, but my husband thought it was good. I probably won't make it again.
Great marinade! My husband and I loved it, the only change was I only baked it for an hour and it was tender and juicy.
This was ok. It made the chicken flavorful, but I couldn't really taste any flavors besides soy and garlic. Still, an easy way to change chicken around.
What a great and simple recipe. Nothing too fancy but full of flavor. This was enjoyable.
I did the same as a lot of reviewers and used chicken breasts, minced onion and orange marmalade. My hubby thought this was a fantastic dish. I served this with rice and salad. Next time I serve this hubby wants more sauce. Thanks for the recipe.
This was a great "sunday dinner" meal! I used boneless chicken tenders and served over rice - - was delicious!
Not out of this world good, but still pretty tasty. I really liked the garlic, however I dont think this tasted much of orange or honey! Next time I will use orange concentrate to kick up the flavor..I will play around with the ingredients a little next time and we'll see.
I used chicken breast. Maybe next time I'll use a whole chicken. It was just OK for me...not as much flavor as I had hoped. Leftover were kind of weird, too.
It was amazing! I made half a chicken with this recipe and ate it all at once.
Fantastic meal! Having to start cooking lowfat foods for health reasons I was concerned but this recipe converted me forever! Not only did I love it but so did my husband and 5 yr old daughter. I only marinated for an hour and that was plenty! Will definately pass this one along!
I was expecting a little stronger orange taste. It was very stong in soy sauce.
I added extra garlic cloves to the marinade, marinated chicken breasts then grilled. This tasted great! We didn't really like the oregano, so we might leave that out next time.
This was such a great recipe....it was a hit with the entire family
Very good, I made into kabobs and cook on BBQ. I added marinate to pieces and let sit all day or freeze for later use.
I used chicken breasts instead of the whole chicken and they worked out just fine.
