Have not made this chicken in such a long, long time so it's time to again. Seem to recall peeling orange beforehand.
I read the reviews, I made it anyway... edible but not good. The chicken dried out, the orange rind was bitter. It's a waste of time and ingredients. I thought with Taste of Home's backing it couldn't be bad... IT WAS! I am disappointed in TOH!
We loved it. I peeled the oranges before cooking, and left everything else the exact way stated and it turned out great!
Citrus chicken turns out beautifully and tastes delicious. The only thing I do that is not in the recipe is I peel the oranges as I do not like the taste if the orange peel is in with the chicken while it cooks. It's a keeper and definitely going in my recipe box.
This recipe was awful. I thought it was going to be delicious, and it smelled really good, but when I opened up my crockpot it looked awful. Unfortunately it tasted just as bad as it looked. The sauce itself was pretty decent but everything else cooked poorly. If I ever made this again, I'd cook the sauce down in a pan, and saute the chicken on its own.
