This is a really tasty and easy recipe. The only change I made was to put the chicken on a vertical roaster instead of leaving it in a dish to bake. Also it might help to put the butter on the chicken first and then add the spices. This way the spices will adhere to the chicken better. Overall the chicken was very tasty and the orange soda makes a nice glaze. THanks for the keeper recipe:)

This was a waste of a can of orange soda! The chicken just tasted like chicken and was nothing special.

This recipe was good but it didn't have the favor I thought it would. I was wanting something different to do with the whole chicken I had to fix and the recipe tasted the same as just baking it.
