"This was a nice twist. I would not add the orange zest next time as it was too much of the orange flavor, but I will definitely make this again!"

"I halved the recipe, but only used two boneless chickens for my husband and I.

Worked great and easy enough for camping.
I put the ingredients together in a small freezer baggie, put in fridge and heated up in the microwave."

"Oh yummy! Easy, fast, and delicious! I used chicken tenderloins and cooked on my electric skillet. I did not use the orange peel bc I didn't have one. Served with wild rice and roasted cajun zucchini. I will make this again and again!"
