"I made this tonight and it was delicious. It had the sweet from the marmalade and a bit of spice from the salsa (I used medium). It tasted like orange chicken with out the deep fried meat. This is in my recipe rotation!!"

"made this as is, and it was good. It was sweet, and you do need to cook longer than 2 minutes if you want a thicker sauce."

"This tasted a lot like the Orange chicken from a Chinese restaurant. Didn't miss the fried meat in it. I used leftover pork tenderloin with with the chicken. That was good also. Will definitely make this again. Very easy."

"Great way to reinvent chicken and Rice Left-overs. Rave reviews and I had the key ingrediants right in my fridge. I used this to spice up my grilled chix left overs so I added already grilled chix to the skillet and added the Salsa recipe. Scooped it ontop of nuked left over rice pilaf and tada! Chix Salsa! Delish!"

"I loved the unusual combination in the sauce, but felt it was a bit too sweet. Next time I will either cut the marmalade or the brown sugar a bit."

"I'll admit when I saw minute rice and allspice as the ingredients, I was very skeptical. I'm so glad I tried this one! The flavor was Awesome! Only downfall is I used medium salsa and the kids didn't like it - next time I'll use mild salsa."
