      Wow! This was so good. I followed it (sort of), but I did not have any fresh herbs, other than sage, so I used dried thyme, oregano and basil. I even forgot to let the chicken "marinate" and it was still delicious. The sauce came out very good, except that it was a little bitter, perhaps because I did not use a high quality orange juice. To ease the bitterness, I added honey to taste. I did not make the puree but instead served with caramelized onion mashed potatoes. My husband loved the sauce even on his potatoes. This meal transformed our $4 chicken into a gourmet meal. Thanks!!!! I did not make the green onion puree.

      This was wonderful!!! I added a little more olive oil to the puree, then had it as a sauce that everyone could pour over, since not everyone in my family likes green onions. I will certainly make this again!!
