Another chicken recipe that sounds delishes and from"All*You Eat Well, Save Big Cookbook". The prep time is only about 5 minutes but I had to add the marinating time of 60 minutes.

Oh this was so good, just wish I had the orange zest to (unfortunately 2 legged gremlins had eaten them up) so had to use commercial orange juice but I think fresh and the zest would be the best way to go and make it a super recipe which is what is should be, thoroughly enjoyed be three of us (I made 8 thighs but only 6 were used for dinner, the other 2 will be for sandwiches for lunch), the only thing I did differently was to reduce the sauce down more about 10 minutes otherwise stuck to recipe for a very moist chicken with heaps of flavour, thank you mama smurf, made for Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap #80 September 2013.
