This dish was pretty good but a lot of work that can be avoided. I make a similar dish when grilling chicken. Melt some marmalade in a saucepan, mix in a teaspoon of sesame oil and brush chicken while it is on the grill.

Very good. I steamed my veggies and oranges on the grill in foil. Probably will use even more orange next time.

This Chicken recipe tasted great, my family really liked it. Also the left over chicked breast made great sandwiches on a kiaser rool. It did take longer to prepare than the recipies I usually make but it was worth the effort!
