Very good. The sauce has a nice sweet and slightly smoky flavor tht compliments the chicken well. I found it a bit too sweet, but not enough to ruin the dish. Next time, I would double the amount of sauce as there wasn't quite enough to go around.

good and easy-used water instead of orange juice as a bit sweet for some of the family....will make it for Sukkot.

This was an easy and delicious recipe, but a little sweet. Next time I will add a little crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat.
