I used this with some cubed tofu it was good. I accidentally put to much honey in it so it was sweeter then I wanted, but all in all it was pretty good. I know that if I put a little less honey it would be wonderful thank you very much.

Very good! I marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts overnight and they really absorbed the orange flavor. One suggestion. After marinating chicken breasts, you may want to encrust them in an orange peel/bread crumb breading. There's a recipe on Recipezaar for oven fried orange chicken. Use this marinade then use that oven fried chicken recipe.
