"This chicken has a wonderful flavor and the citrus makes it nice and tender. Plan ahead, because it does need to marinade 1-2 hours. We enjoy using the leftover chicken on top of mixed green salads. Prep time does not include maridading. Grilling time is estimated."

"Fresh orange juice is a must! The chicken was in the marinade for about 3 hours. The end result was moist, flavorful chicken. It was served on a bed a wild a brown rice with Recipe #109418."
"Deliciously moist chicken and an easy marinade mixture using pantry staples. All my family enjoyed their chicken tonight and the recipe was already gluten-free suitable :D Photo also to be posted"
"This is a great marinade for chicken! Short marinade time and made with ingredients I always have on hand is a real plus too. This combination of flavors made a great blend with no one flavor overpowering the others. Loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Loved it! I didn't have fresh limes, but did have some bottled key lime juice, so I dumped that in. I didn't measure out the orange, just used all the juice from a fresh orange and then scraped in some of the pulp. The chicken was a thickly-cut, so I sliced them in half for thinner pieces. Put all the marinade and chicken together and soaked overnight. It came out so juicy and tasty! Neither juice flavor was overpowering, but it was just an overall nice citrus flavor. I completely recommend this!"
"This was OUTSTANDING. I doubled the recipe, and used an entire bag of chicken breasts from Costco, so that we would have leftovers during the week for salads and sandwiches. We had company for dinner, and the chicken was a big hit. Flavorful, but not overwhelming, and very tender and juicy."
"I made this exactly as posted using fresh-squeezed orange juice. I sliced my chicken breast in half to speed up the cooking time and poked it all over with a knife so that the marinade would soak into the chicken. The end result was a delicious, tender, juicy chicken bursting with flavor. Made as an extra for the July 2011 Aus/NZ Swap."
"I served the chicken "fajita-style" with sauteed onions and red peppers. I used fresh thyme and lemon juice for the lime and was lucky enough to have a fresh orange for the juice. It had a light citrus flavor with a "woodsy" flavor from the thyme. We all enjoyed and I'll keep some oranges on hand to make again. Thanks Chef Bugsy Mate! Roxygirl"
"Delicious recipe! This chicken turned out juicy and tender. I agree with mamere94 in that it doesn't have tremendous orange flavor--just a nice overall citrus flavor. I especially loved the spice combination, which reminds me of fajita seasoning. Thank you! Made for Recipe Swap #19 Aus/NZ."
"Made for Recipe Swap #18 Aus/NZ. Yummy, yummy chicken. It was so moist and tasty. I love the combination of flavors. Can't wait to try the left over chicken on a salad for my lunch! I've just added a new recipe to my list of chicken grilling recipes! Thanks for posting this Chef Bugsy Mate!"
"Excellent! We really enjoyed this chicken. I made ahead and froze in the marinade. Then thawed and grilled on serving day. The combination of herbs and orange juice is just wonderful. Very flavorful and moist chicken. Had a little leftover and made fried rice with it the next day. Terrific!"
"Very tasty recipe! Unfortunately, the orange flavour didn't shine through even though I used freshly squeezed juice. The meat was incredibly juicy!!"
