  1. Great tasting recipe. Easy to follow and easy to make. I do not like spicy food, so hesitated adding the crushed red pepper flakes. I cut it to 1/4 tsp and was glad I did. It added a subtle but definately present heat to the flavor. I also chose a Seville Orange Marmalade, which was not too sugary and also had a bite. The almonds added a fresh crunch. Everybody in my family like the flavor. There was nothing left over
  2. Yummy! Doubled the entire recipe successfully. Served over white rice and sautéed mushrooms. Definitely a keeper!
  3. This was good but it didn't have as much flavor as I'd hoped. I couldn't find orange maramalade or steak sauce without high fructose corn syrup and I normally avoid it at all costs, so I think I was expecting a lot from the recipe since I was bending my strict rules to make it :)
  4. Yummy-tasted like orange barb chicken. I scaled the recipe down for one & prepared as written, except I used butter spray & poured the sauce over the chicken & simmered 15 min, basting with the sauce. I also just used my generic brand steak sauce & low sugar marmalade. So quick, too!
  5. Update: Just realized that I gave this the wrong # of stars. Trying to get used to the new Zaar format ;-) "Last night was chicken night - I had a package of BL/SL breasts & rather than freezing part of it, I made 3 different recipes. I loved this one! Made exactly as written. Easy & zippy! Will defintely make again! Thanks!"
