    This dish was neither sweet not savory. It was blah. I knew I was in trouble when I came to my kitchen and took in a whiff. I was not getting a pleasant smell. I was envisioning the sweetness from the peaches, honey and orange juice. What I smelled was vinegar and slight smell of chicken. The chicken was moist. I will give it that much. If it were me I would have put 1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar in the sauce and made it more sweet and sour chicken. I will use the baking method with the juice but I will doctor up my own rather than follow this recipe.
