This goes straight into my favourites cookbook. Delicious! I marinated the chicken in a casserole dish rather than in a plastic bag. I also forgot to add the broth. Other than that the recipe was followed exactly right down to using coconut flour which I found at Bulk Barn. The citrus flavour was wonderful. Thanks for posting this recipe.

I usually [but not always!] stay away from recipes that include the terms 'strain' or 'sieve!' Am glad I didn't with this one, however, since this recipe gave me a delicious, citrusy chicken dish! Guests loved it, & so did I! The next time around I want to ferret out some coconut flour to use! Thanks for this winning recipe!
