Oh, yum! My family really enjoyed this recipe! It's super easy, smells & tastes wonderful. I used the oven method, because I didn't get it started early enough for the crock pot, and I scaled it down to feed 4 of us. I used orange marmalade and Jack Daniel's No. 7 Original BBQ sauce. I also thought that almost 2 hours of cooking was going to be too much for the 4 chicken breasts I was doing, so I baked them for 30 & then pulled them out of the oven, but left them covered, until the wheatberry salad and mixed veggies were ready to eat. The end result was deliciously moist chicken! :) DH & DS shredded their chicken & made sandwiches with it and extra sauce, while DD & I enjoyed the chicken as prepared. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Elly, we'll be making it again! Made & enjoyed in honor of your dear DH, Jim.

I am quite surprised this dish received such high ratings. I prepared this dish exactly as described and the flavor is almost too bitter with a "burnt" kind of quality that left the dish tasting odd. The chicken was bland - and produced a very thin watery sauce. Had I not taken the sauce and turned it into a gravy using butter and cornstarch - then heavily "doctoring" it - the dish would have been really bad. I think adjustments should be made to cooking times as well as an effort to contain the chicken under the sauce to prevent dryness.

I also scaled this down and prepared it in the oven, but the flavour was still just delicious! We loved this for it's taste and simplicity. Also, it's a real kid pleaser! Thanks Elly!

I scaled this down and made in the oven, it was as good as I thought it would be! Will be making the full quantity when having family and friends in or for pot lucks - know it will make for one great crowd pleaser. Made in memory of Elly's DH.

I made a scaled down version of this recipe for dinner tonight, using the oven, since there were only two of us for dinner but this recipe is so good, I would definitely do the full quantity to bring to a pot luck or family dinner. We just loved the sauce! I served it with a side of cauliflower mashed potatoes and the sauce went well with that, too.

We did enjoy the flavour of the chicken. I did it in the oven and think it would be much better cooking slowly in the crock but there was only 2 of us for dinner tonight. Only change I will make next time is to get a plain BBQ sauce to allow the flavour of the marmalade and soy sauce to be more prominent. Paired it with Elly's Skillet Roast Potatoes Skillet Roasted Potatoes

Tasty and easy dish, even picky son liked this. I used the crock pot and boneless chicken. We will definitely make this again and again. Thanks for posting.

We enjoyed this, and instead of using ginger I found a Kraft BBQ sauce that was Ginger Teriyaki. I would recommend 6 hours on low at a maximum because any longer and our chicken would have been way too dry. I was also using an older crockpot, so that might have contributed to this as well.

Great recipe! I was a little worried that the orange marmalade might be too strong (my son doesn't like it that much) but in this it was perfect. I used boneless chicken breast and added a little ground ginger. Grilled it up on my George Foreman grill and it came out tender and tasty.

DH and I really enjoyed this recipe. I halved the amount of chicken, using 3 large chicken breasts and 3 chicken thighs, but kept the rest of the volumes the same. I added a TBSP minced garlic, as well as some crushed red pepper at the same time as the cornstarch, for some added zip. Easy and great tasting, reminded me of take out chinese orange chicken! Served with roasted broccoli and garlic, on steamed rice. Yummy!
