MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2014

Have not made this chicken in such a long, long time so it's time to again. Seem to recall peeling orange beforehand.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2012

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!

MY REVIEW

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 11, 2009

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.
