I loved this recipe!! I used legs and thighs and my husband said they were so tender and flavorful! I made the sauce the day before and let them sit in the refrig overnight and until I came home from work. The flavor was great! You could really taste the maple and because I didn't have fresh basil I used dried. Thank you Kitina for sharing!!

Very good chicken recipe! It was so easy and very flavorful! My hubby and kids loved it! I did had make a couple of changes, though. I didn't have any fresh oranges, just the juice, so adding some zest would have added so much to it. I also added about 3 tbsp of brown sugar and about 2 tbsp of ketchup. I also used dried basil. I also cooked the chicken in the oven on 400* for about 1 and 15 minutes. However, even with my changes, it was still very good! I'll be making this again for sure!!!

This was very good! I didn't marinate it the night before so I quadrupled the marinade, added a little bit of brown sugar and put it in the crock pot for 6 hours. the house smelt so sweet when I came home and the chicken fell right off the bone. I will definitely make this again, it was so simple but delicious!

The recipe proves that with a few simple ingredients, it's easy to make a delicious chicken dinner. My teenage daughter made it for us, and we all thought it was great with rice. She marinated whole chicken legs for only a couple of hours, and then the chicken was baked instead of grilled. She also added a little brown sugar, taking another reviewer's advice. Thanks for a tasty recipe we'll make again!
