I made 2 servings of this fab recipe last night and it was a real hit. Not only is it delicious and succulent but it's also lovely. I did use the Grand Marnier and even the uber picky DH loved it! I count this as totally company and holiday worthy in all respects. Used black rice with golden raisins added to it and steamed broccoli tops as sides. Talk about drama on a plate! Keeper.
Wonderful recipe! I made it exactly as directed adding in the Grand Marnier. WOW - so intensely orange and oh so good. I love how the vegetables thickened the sauce just perfectly without needing cornstarch or other thickeners. I will definitely made this company worthy dish again! Made for the Bistro Babes - ZWT8
Delicious! I completely agree with adding the optional Grand Marnier. I served it with Sauteed Cauliflower. The slight tartness of the orange sauce went beautifully with the sweetness of the cauliflower.
Very good. The presentation is great. The color is amazing. The carrots added so much to the sauce, thickening it nicely. I used small organic oranges that were not sweet enough so I added more sugar. Served it with rice and arugula salad. Nice recipe! Edited to add: I wanted to mention that, as FT said in her review, the addition of Grand Marnier is almost a must. The sauce takes on a fuller-bodied taste and a rounder tartness.
This has to be one the most elegant and delicious dishes I have made for some time - what an inventive and colourful dish - and how to make something different out of the "what shall I do with chicken breasts today" dilemma!! I made one small substitution..........NO limes........so I used an extra mixture of orange juice mixed with lemon juice - AND I did add a good slug of Grand Marnier.....you asked for opinions Twissis - add it as an ingredient! It added a depth and complexity to the sauce - I know as I did a before and after taste test! A great recipe that I will now steal for my guests and for future dinner parties.....thanks for this amazing recipe - FT:-)
