    Sydney Mike's Note:

    Can't remember where the original of this recipe came from, but I've had in on file for over 25 years! I find oranges and chicken to be such a great combination! Preparation time does not include cooking the rice. Sometimes I substitute Triple-Sec for the Curacao.

      Very nice chicken recipe! Easy to make but has an elegant look and taste. I used crushed red pepper flakes on the chicken instead of ground red pepper, otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Really good chicken. The sauce was great. I added salt and pepper to the chicken breasts because we thought it needed it, and I browned them first for more flavor. I had Triple Sec on hand, so used that. Really great recipe, we will have this again, Thanks!

      This was delicious and the chicken was so moist. I did have to cook the chicken an additional 10-15 minutes, but my chicken breasts were quite large. I used Triple Sec for the Curacao, and loved the orange flavor of the sauce. This was the first time that I have cooked with the aromatic bitters and it gave the sauce a nice flavor that's really hard to put into words. Thanks Sydney Mike for a posting another winner.
