"This was incredible, but I think if it marinaded more than an hour it would've been even better. I read in one review where someone thought it was too sweet so I used unsweetened orange marmalade and it was just perfect. I think when I make it again I will be sure it gets to marinade longer and maybe even prick the chicken a little so the mixture can seep inside. This is a keeper!"

"This recipe has a strong orange flavor and is very sweet. I preferred the Apricot Glazed chicken recipe (From the Cooking for 2 Magazine) over this one."

"I was in a hurry to make dinner, so I cooked the chicken on my George Foreman Grill for about 8 minutes (175 degrees). I put the marinade in a sauce pan over medium-high heat and let it reduce by half. Plate up the chicken and drizzle the marinade over top.

The chicken was juicy & tender. The marinade was sweet and just right.
Before we were evn done eating, my husband and son requested it again. I will be adding this to my file."

"Best type of recipe: few ingredients, usually on hand, easy and fast. Next time I may decrease the OJ and increase the soy sauce. My husband prefers the breasts pounded to 1/4" so one large breast served us both."

"Super easy and really good. I boiled carrots and used a bit of the fresh oj and soy sauce mixture with a T of marmalade and a T of brown sugar. I served the carrots over rice with the chicken."

"I made this and the flavor was delicious. It was also so, so easy to make with only 3 ingredients. I will definately make this again,"
