      The chicken was nice and moist but we were a bit disappointed with the flavor. The cumin was overly dominate in this dish. We didn't taste the orange nor the lime juice. I would suggest cutting the cumin down to 1/2 tsp. Made for Let's P-A-R-T-Y 2009 tag game.

      Delicious! This was prepared exactly as written. I used a nonstick frying pan so that I wouldn't have to use too much oil and for the juice I used an orange/mango blend. The chicken was served with basmati rice and ataulfo mango slices. The only thing I would do differently is double the sauce ingredients. Made for Spring09PAC.

      This dish was so yummy. mango was the perfect side dish for it. Only complaint I have is that it seems the nutrition info was calculated without the oil its cooked in. I used olive oil which added over 200 calories. I also needed to use an extra 1/2 c. of juice to have enough sauce for all 4 breasts. Otherwise I didnt change a thing! Will be making this again :)
