DH raved about this one! I didnt use any orange rind but did everything else exactly. Very good.

Fantastically easy, chicken stayed really moist, great flavor. As in another review, I also used orange juice instead of water. Next time though, I might add a tad of lemon juice just to cut through the sweetness of the glaze.
