Yery Good ... I normally associate chicken with lemon, but the combination of orange juice and spices really worked well. I am still a Solo eater but the extra chicken kept it's flavor when refrigerated and became the basis of nice cold sandwiches for several days.

This was great! I also added a 1/2 tsp of rosewater, and used cardamom instead of allspice. Wonderfull!

I cooked this for my mom and dad. They were a little skepticle at first because of the unusual ingrediants. I didn't use the couscous but it was still a big hit!

This was very tasty and a breeze to prepare. I chopped up my chicken breasts rather than leaving them whole and reduced the honey to 1 1/2 tablespoons. Good with the couscous although I prepared the couscous differently. Great recipe thanks!

A friend droped in as I was about to prepare this dish for the first time. It was easy to make and I had everything I needed for this recipe in the house already. It was great and I will make it again for sure. The only thing I might change is the amount of honey. I have a sweet tooth but I still found it a little on the sweet side.

Thanks, Karen, for the nice change of pace. My picky son (recovering anorexic) told me he was tired of anything with lemon in it but he chowed down on this dish with the orange flavor. I substituted cardamon for the cinnamon and served this with a cucumber, parsley, tomato salad and pita bread. Everyone was happy and relieved that something I cooked turned out to be edible for once :)

This was wonderfull chicken Karen!! DH always says he dosen't like couscous, so i snuck it in on him tonight and he loved it!! We really enjoyed this meal, especially the sauce, it was exceptional!!The spices and orange with the onions and garlic, the flavours all just came together to make an outstanding sauce, I just wish there had been more or it!! Made the whole recipe and will finish it up for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for a keeper, will be making this again soon!!

Delcious chicken dish! The directions are very clear and the measurements are very precise. I loved the flavor combinations of the orange juice sauce and the spices. The chicken came out very moist and juicy. It didn't strike me as tasting particularly Lebanese, but the taste was still delicious. This was also a very attractive looking dish, which I wouldn't hesistate to serve to guests.

Thank you Karen for such an easy and wonderful tasting recipe. I have never used orange juice and orange zest in a recipe before. The sauce was superb! We will certainly make this again!!

Very good chicken, however it doesn't really taste Lebanese .. I thought it was too sweet so I will reduce the honey next time ..
