      This the second RSC#9 recipe that I have made post-contest - and yet again, I am so sorry that I did not try this when the contest was running - I made so many though!!! You should be very proud of devising this recipe - it was SUPERB! We ALL loved the blend of ingredients and flavours....the chicken was wonderful cooked this way. plus, the sauce was DIVINE - I will be using the marinade/sauce for future cooking! I am lucky enough to be able to buy Grand Marnier in France at much reduced prices compared to the rest of the world, so 1/2 cup was not a problem - but if it is a problem where you live, put a slug of Brandy in with some orange juice - that will do the trick! Thanks for posting this - I urge anyone who likes fruity chicken and vegetables to make it! FT:-)
