      This was a very easy, flavorful recipe, that required very little in the way of prep. I used a fresh orange peel and cut the chicken into chunks versus strips, but otherwise followed all directions as posted. We served with acerast's Rice Pilaf, Blueberry Blintz (which was really good) and some boiled pole beans. This was a good recipe for a work night. Thanks!

      Very flavorable - it was wonderful with couscous and steamed green beans. The blend of spices was heavenly and it was a quick and easy dish to prepare! I will add this to our rotation!

      A really, really great recipe, & one I'll be keeping on hand, as I'm always on the lookout for new ways to fix chicken breasts! Absolutely loved the citrusy flavor of the sauce! Definitely a winner! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed during the Family Picks portion of ZWT6]
