Hi BK, I made this chicken tonight for dinner and it waas thoroughly enjoyed by all I had orange liqueur left over from the holidays that needed to be used up, the only change I might make next time is to reduce the orange liqueur slightly, I will be making this again soon, we loved it, thank for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

This was really good BK. I loved the sauce, however mine didnt glaze the chicken like I thought it would, it stayed very liquidy and I was afraid that if I cooked it longer the chicken would get too dried out. I tried to thicken a small amount of the sauce but it changed the taste to me. The best thing that I took the meat off the bones and put it in the sauce and refrigerated it. It was wonderful on a salad the next day with some mandarin orange slices, sliced almonds and rice noodles! When I make this again I am going to only do boneless breasts and not cook as long and brown on the stove. I also used orange juice in place of the liqueur. Thanks BK for a great recipe!
