I was torn between 4 and 5 stars for this recipe, as the orange juice overpowered the ingredients, I used sweetened juice and that may have been the culprit, also 1/2 cup fresh garlic was a bit extreme even for myself who loves garlic, I only used 2 heaping tablespoonfuls, if I should make this again I will need to play around with amounts and do some adjustments, thanks for sharing Marra!
