Quick Orange Glazed Chicken

I make this colorful main dish at least once a month—our grandkids love it. The original recipe called for a cut-up fryer, but I use boneless chicken breasts because they're convenient and cook more quickly.—Janice Mitchell, Aurora, Colorado

    We really enjoy this recipe. I double the sauce ingredients because we like it saucy. Thank you for sharing this keeper. Have made it many times.

    Excellent taste. I felt the orange carrots with the orange sauce lacked appeal. Plan to use snow peas next time.

    Nice healthy alternative. Marmalade and orange juice give it a fresh citrusy taste.
