    It only took me a year to review this great recipe LOL....Don't get me wrong it is awesome. I just forgot and saw the photo and realized ...OOPS. It was very tender and had a wonderful flavor of oranges. The sauce was also yummy!!! Thanks Jewelies for your patients :)

    Pretty much followed the recipe, but I did use 2 large cloves of garlic & the oranges were also large ones! Loved the combo of spices here & the chicken, when served, was outstanding! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a recipenapped tag in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]

    This had good flavor; I think the next time I make it--I will make a paste of the orange-soy mixture and spread it under the chicken skin. Thanks for posting!

    Hubby and I liked this very much. I do not have a clay pot, so I made it in a regular roasting pan. I upped the amount of garlic, I used 4 cloves to put inside the chicken, and then I also put 2 in the juice mixture that is poured over top the chicken. I must say I think next time I will use more because I could not taste it very much. Also, my chicken took longer than 90 minutes to cook. I added 20 minutes to the cooking time, and carved it and found it was still too uncooked for our tastes, so I just roasted the carvings in the oven, covered with some of the orange slices and juice for around 10 minutes more. Besides more garlic, there isn't anything else I would change about this recipe. Thanks for posting!
