This was enjoyed by DH and myself. There is a slight orange taste but it certainly isn't dominate. I used fresh ginger and omitted the salt because soy sauce is already on the salty side. I used Pheasant instead of chicken. Added veggies to the skewers and served it over rice. Thanks for posting. :)

This has a nice orange flavor! I marinated for about 5 1/2 hours and due to weather constraints, I sauteed the chicken. I like the honey added to the reserved marinade; gives the chicken a sweetness and the honey makes a nice thicker glaze. Made for AUS/NZ Make My Recipe.

This was quite delish! I doubled the recipe for 4 boneless breast halves and 3 chicken thighs. The thighs were especially yummy! The only change was using fresh ginger instead of the powdered. I grilled these using charcoal, first directly over the heat then moving the pieces to the side. I started the thighs first, cooking for about 15 minutes before adding the breasts, I think the thighs took about 40 minutes and the breasts about 20. I skipped the grilled veggies as I made grilled garlic bread and wanted my veggies a bit different but I'm sure they would be delicious too. I had intended to take a photo but when I realized I had forgotten too, my DS's girlfriend said I should just take one of our empty plates! Thanks Boomette for another great recipe. Made for Everyday's a Holiday Tag.

What a lovely recipe Boomie! We thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I did cheat and just used flattened chicken breasts instead of making skewers. The only little skip I made was to omit the hot sauce, The flavors are wonderful and the chicken was so moist. Served over brown rice with grilled asparagus on the side. Thanks for sharing your recipe in the tag games.

Chicken cooked with this marinade is just so fabulously moist and flavoursome. I used slices of red pepper, onion and mushroom on the skewers between the chicken pieces, so naturally they also absorbed the wonderful flavours from the marinade. I slightly modified the marinade to meet our taste preferences: simply by reducing both the tabasco and the ginger. I used a low salt soy sauce and I did include the sesame oil which greatly contributed to the wonderful blend of flavours. We enjoyed this with rice. Essential to enjoy and savour every last drop of the marinade. Made for Every Day is a Holiday. I'll be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Boomette.

OK, so I was lazy and didn't skewer my chicken...but it was darn tasty nevertheless. (just a little less fancy) Tender with bursts of flavor in every bite. Even though I increased the garlic, the ginger was still the dominate player here. Kids LOVED it...which is always good! I served mine with fresh green beans and Basmati rice pilaf tonight. I think we have a new favorite in the house for grilled chicken. Thanks, Babe!

oh great marinade!, I increased the fresh garlic and the Tabasco, freshly squeezed orange juice is a must for this, I marinated for 8 hours, grilled them outdoors and served with marinaded cherry tomato skewers, we loved this, thanks for sharing Booms!

This was really tasty. We enjoyed it very much. The chicken was perfect, tender, juicy and very flavourful. I omitted the sesame oil but followed the recipe religiously and served it with your Sweet Potatoes With Orange Glaze . It was very satisfying. Thanks for an enjoyable dinner.
