This recipe is from "Treasury of Creative Cooking," and it's come out wonderful every time I make it. The sauce gives the chicken a very nice flavor.

Top Review by Lennie

This is a wonderful recipe that is easy enough for a family dinner yet impressive enough for company. I used skinless boneless chicken breasts and cut the baking time down accordingly; I also cut the sauce in half because I had under 2 lbs of breasts. I used the orange that I had zested to make the garnish for the serving platter: I cut off the ends and remaining peel and segmented it, using the orange pieces on the platter -- and it looked great! I served this with white rice and green beans, and my family loved it. This easy, delicious recipe is one I will prepare often; thanks for sharing!
