We really like the flavor of curry, so I had high hopes for this recipe. In our opinion, the orange juice trumped any other flavors! If I make it again, I would exchange chicken broth for the orange juice and probably add more curry powder.

I have made this chicken dish for decades. It is important not to overcook it as the chicken will become dry. I use boneless, skinless breast halves. I tried it with tenders and they were too small and overcooked. Fresh orange juice is best and I have added the juice of a small lemon or lime several times. My husband does not care for citrus flavored proteins, so I make it when I have guests. It is good very gently re-heated in order to keep the chicken tender. Curry can be adjusted for personal preferences.
