This was a very easy, flavorful recipe, that required very little in the way of prep. I used a fresh orange peel and cut the chicken into chunks versus strips, but otherwise followed all directions as posted. We served with acerast's Rice Pilaf, Recipe #228832 (which was really good) and some boiled pole beans. This was a good recipe for a work night. Thanks!
Only occasionally do I come across a recipe that makes me ooh and aaah for days, and for me this is that recipe. The combination of spices in this recipe are positively marvelous and flavor the chicken to perfection. Not one individual flavor jumped out, but rather they all melded together to create a delectable flavor sensation that cannot be beat. I kept my chicken in whole pieces (rather than cutting them in strips, as the recipe instructs), but otherwise stuck to the recipe as written. We positively loved this dish, and I will make it often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, English_Rose. It's a true "keeper" for me. Made for Zaar World Tour #6.
