    I prepared this recipe for my brown bag lunch. I marinated the chicken overnight instead of a hour.<br/>Like Evelyn/athens suggested, I did turn the chicken midway during cooking to ensure even basting and coloring.<br/>Came out beautiful and taste was good<br/>I would add more season in the marinate and with the onions and oranges. Will do this recipe again and tweek it.

    I absolutely loved this as did the rest of my family. I eliminated the marinating step due to time but felt that it was delicious just the same.

    This was a very simple recipe with a great taste. The chicken was moist. I would have given it 5 stars but there was one young guest that did not care for the citrus taste.
