My favorite meal features these golden crumb-coated chicken rolls with a savory chive filling. They have a lovely orange flavor without being overwhelming. Serve them with rice or potatoes for Sunday dinner or a party. —Arlene Butler, Ogden, Utah

"Loved this chicken; it has just the right amount of orange flavor. I served it with the Asparagus Tomato salad from the same issue and homemade Hawaiian Rolls."

"I love this recipe. The orange flavors are refreshing. One thing I do to make sure the breading is browned is brush lightly with melted butter 1/2 way through baking. I use the lid of a butter dish to form the butter and herb filling. Freeze and slice it into the number of pieces I need."

"This is a great recipe. It is easy and looks like it took a lot of time and effort. My family loves it- the orange gives it it's unique flavor. Will make again."

"It was a decent meal but the flavors just didn't impress me. It's hard to roll the chicken in the bowls when the toothpicks are in, so only put the toothpicks in when the chicken is put in the pan."
