"Too strong of an "orange" flavor, could easily cut back the oj..."

Reviewed Apr. 29, 2010

"Excellent flavor and so easy. Don't thaw the orange juice concentrate and the sauce shouldn't be too thin...just baste the chicken while it is cooking."

Reviewed Dec. 9, 2009

"Is the sauce supposed to be heated? It was very thin and didn't really add anything to our chicken. I probably would not make again."
