    I made this recipe tonight with a few modifications. I added about half a red onion sliced and a tablespoon of soy sauce, and I added a bit more orange juice while it cooked because the sauce seemed to be thickening up too quickly. I also added fresh black pepper just before serving. Like another reviewer, I was worried while cooking because I didn't think it smelled like it was going to taste good, but it was delicious served over some rice. I will make it with the onion & soy again next time. Nice simple dish.

    So yummy! Sweet & tropical, and easy to throw together. I've made it twice now, and our family has loved it both times. I use a mildly spicy bbq sauce (Smokey Cornwall's No. 2 BBQ Sauce) and it was PERFECT. Thanks for posting this!

    We really loved this dish!! I wasn't sure if "cubed chicken" meant cooked or not. So, I cooked it. I did half the recipe for the two of us. Delicious :) I'm definitely making this again - I suspect it will make it into my regular rotation. Served with steamed veggies (and would have bee rice, too, were it not for a rice incident...)
