Very quick and easy to prepare marinade. I used it to flavour some pieces of chicken breast, I added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic, then sauteed the marinated chicken in a bit of oil. Served with rice and mixed vegetables. I really enjoyed the orange flavour!

Made this for a friend of mine who was looking for a good marinade for chicken breasts! I managed a taste of it & it IS OUTSTANDING! I enjoyed (& so did she) the unusual taste of citrus with the tomato & the heat of chile powder! This will go on my list of special gifts for this next winter! Thanks for sharing!
