Thanks for this 5 star. It is so tasty but I did add orange zest from he whole orange. I used chicken parts to but the whole cut up chicken as I save the parts I can't use in this recipe for later use for chicken stock for other recipes. My hubby really loved this recipe I did skin the chicken as both of us are on low fat diet. Thanks again for this recipe
This is a truly awesome recipe. This made excellent use of contest ingredeints. The recipe didn't say to, but I did remove the skin from the chicken prior to browning. This was primarly for dietary purposes. I divided the recipe in half, used 2 small white potatoes and 1 rather large carrot. I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough liquid with the small amount of orange juice and soy sauce. The liquid was perfect and produced nicely glazed vegetables with just a touch of the sauce to pour over all when serving. Good luck in the contest.
Simply Delish! Tender tender Tender! Perfect cooking times. I did remove the skin from the chicken which I think is key. The veggies with sweet and soft. If I had to make any change to this recipe it would be the addtion of the orange zest. Thanks for this 5 star recipe.
Our family thought this recipe had great flavor and loved the veggies on the side. It definitely was a little greasier than we are used to eating, but that is just personal preference and probably is what made it taste so good. I had to use dried rosemary, but it was still delicious... a perfect complement to the other flavors!
I think that chicken should have been skinned because even though it was browned it got soggy and flabby. The recipe doesn't say to pour off excess grease after browning the chicken but I couldn't stand the thought of the veggies swimming in all that chicken fat so I did it anyway. Additionally, with the grease poured off I don't feel that there was enough braising liquid. The flavors are sound and I think I could make a really good crockpot recipe out of it if I played with it a little, but I found the directions and technique lacking. Note: I chilled the leftovers in their liquid to keep the meat moist and, even having drained the grease after browning, there was still a thick layer of chicken fat congealed on top when I got them out. In all fairness though the leftovers were moist and flavorful in the simple chicken salad I made from them.
Was a little bland for our tastes! Will make again with some changes ( not sure yet what though ). 3 star
