"GREAT FLAVOR!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 4, 2013

"I love this recipe. Followed it exactly the first time and family loved it. I have since used this recipe many times, and have changed a few things. Usually buy a larger pack of chicken so increase to 2 eggs and a dash more orange juice. Use extra orange zest (peel) for more robust orange flavor. Use full box of stuffing mix. I spray the baking dish and tops of the chicken after placing in the dish instead of using the melted butter. No one noticed any difference! Very tasty chicken!!"
