      I did not cut my chicken up and used this as a basting sauce for a whole roasted chicken. I stuffed the discarded orange rinds into the cavity. I also used onion flakes instead of onion powder. I smeared butter on the skin and added the left over butter to the basting mix. The chicken did not get golden or crispy so I used the broiler for the last 5 minutes to get the skin tanned. Everyone enjoyed the flavors of the chicken and our 6 year old went back for thirds! Thank you for posting. Zaar World Tour 4. Whine and Cheese.

      I made this in a crock pot. Layering a sliced onion on the bottom topping with chicken legs and then pouring the sauce mixture over all. I didn`t have butter so I subbed it with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Added some powdered ginger along with the powdered onion. Slow cooked on high for 3 hours. These was tender and the flavor of the orange was perfect.
