The mellow flavor of chicken pairs well with honey, orange juice and garlic. Broiling for a few minutes gives the chicken a little golden color.

"Sauce is too thin, flavor is okay, but not a favorite. needs to be thicker and more of it to keep the chicken from drying out."

"We really enjoyed it. I made it with OJ and the full amount of garlic and made sure to baste it. I thought it was very flavorful."

"Quite easy to make, the honey and orange don't overwhelm the chicken to make it 'chicken that doesn't take like chicken'. chicken was very moist."

"This chicken has great flavor, but not nearly enough sauce. It is very moist, but needs the sauce to keep from getting dry."
