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.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

This recipe gives a good flavor to baked chicken pieces. I added fresh ground ginger and a little orange marmalade. Very good! Read More

This has a good taste but it could be cooked 1 hour instead of 1 1/2. It was dry after that long. Read More
