    Outstanding! Anyone who likes a sweet sauce (with a mere hint of bitterness) for chicken will love this. Served with noodles and peas. A lovely combination.

    This is the recipe to use when you want to make an ordinary supper an 'occasion'. It truly couldn't be any easier. It also cooks away as you're preparing your vegetables. Loved the glaze. I did cut down a bit on the marmalade, only because it was the end of the jar and I was too lazy to go and get another out of storage. :roll: The meat was tender and juicy and went very well with Recipe #61353. Thanks for posting such a great recipe. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #26

    I made this without the egg and breadcrumbs and it was still delicious.

    This is a really tasty chicken dish, & I enjoyed making it! Easy & tasty ~ What more could one want! I did sub Triple Sec for the Grand Marnier, 'cause that usually is the orange kind of thing I have on hand! The citrus & marmalade did a very nice number of the breasts! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #16]


<p>I love to cook. I love trying new recipes, especially when there is a picture. And I really enjoy reading cookbooks. <br /><br />As a child, I wasn't very good at cooking and always wanted to follow the recipe exactly. That way, if it didn't turn out right, I could blame the recipe! <br /><br />Over time, I have become more experimental. Brave even! <br /><br />I have three children: Shannon is 28, Casey is 26 and Joshua is 19. My DH Jack cheers me on when I try something new. He is my best friend and partner. I am a new grandmother, my grandson's name is Jayce and he's a delight! Plus, I'm going to be a grandmother again - with a granddaughter.<br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />My favorite cookbook is The Dessert Lover's Cookbook. Beautiful pictures, easy instructions. <br /><br />I was born in New Jersey and have lived in Hawaii, Australia, Chicago, Iran, Florida and now living happily in sunny California.</p>
