Made this with just a few small changes ~ I made this with 4 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into bite-size pieces) & used almost 3/4 cup of fresh orange juice along with all the zest (minced) from 1 large orange (I LOVE the taste)! That all made for A VERY NICE TASTING chicken dish! [Tagged, made & reviewed for the All Aboard! French Challenge during ZWT5]
