I cut my chicken up into 1 inch pieces and used 5Alive instead of the orange juice (this is what I had on hand). Presentation was nice, and hubby liked the pineappley taste that the five alive contirbuted, but unfortunately all I could taste was the pepper (and I'm not sensitive when it comes to pepper). Maybe I will try again using chili flakes instead of the black pepper to get a bit more kick without the peppery taste?

This is a perfect marriage of sweet and spicy! So good - this is going in my permanent file. You'll want to serve this with white rice, to savor every last drop of this scrumptious sauce!
