    So easy to whisk this glaze together. The orange flavor really brightens up the taste. I really, really, liked the flavor. DH said the grill needed extra cleaning though, rather sticky.

    This was some super yummy chicken! My son, who is 7, had a friend stay for dinner and both their plates were clean. The friend went home and told his grandma that the chicken was better than anything she ever! I used Sweet Baby Ray's for the barbecue sauce and seasoned my chicken with some Emeril's Essence and pepper before putting it in the marinade. Served with baked potatoes and a green salad. I can see that I will be craving this chicken again soon! I think it would be tasty brushed on salmon also. I loved the orange flavor, you could taste it but it wasn't too orange-y, so good! Thank you so much for sharing .

    Excellent! Hubby added extra bbq sauce to his. I froze the extras, so I'll be making this again. Yum!
