You can save yourself a lot of trouble by using 1/3 cup orange juice concentrate instead of orange juice, and reducing the amount of wine. Add only what water you need to get the desired consistency. Warm gently in a saucepan to meld flavors. Do not worry about a raw alcohol taste, as it will continue to cook off as the chicken cooks.
First of all, like others have mentioned, I had trouble with the glaze. I tried twice. The first time, all the water evaporated, leaving a crispy, sugar powder. The second time, I didn't let it get to this point, but the resulting glaze was too watery. This stuff is my fault. I'm sure that making a caramelized-glaze is one of those things that I should have learned in home ec. But there are major problems with the ratios of ingredients. The orange actually overpowers the wasabi! I increased the wasabi by 5 times, and the orange was still overpowering. I would probably only use 2T to 1/4 c of orange juice. Also, the sauce is much too sweet. At least in these proportions, the sugary-orange wine glaze does not compliment the wasabi taste. The orange/wine glaze is really delicious, though. I gave the recipe two stars because this combination is so unique that I'm sure that just a few changes could make this a really wonderful dish -- just not in its current form.
My hubby and I thought this was very refreshing. The fresh lime juice was an excellent addition. We brushed the chicken with the glaze while it cooked on the grill and added the extra glaze (once it cooled) to the salad. Thanks.
The instructions on this recipe are not complete. And I tried 3 times to get the sugar and water to a "dark amber color," but it seized on me every time. Very difficult recipe, and I am an avid cook and enjoy trying new recipes.
This recipe sounds great but the glaze isn't right, the ratios of the ingredients are wrong I think. The salad was great though, I will use the
This is a receipe that you'll just have to try to get the whole jist of the salad!!!
The dressing came out really flavorful but the glaze on the chicken was a little too sweet. Maybe add more wasabi. Also, I used a chicken substitute (Veat) since I'm a vegetarian and it worked out just fine! Served with some bread it was a satisfying meal.
this is the best recipe ever
