Chicken A La Orange

Recipe by  

"This chicken recipe is quick, easy, and yummy. The orange juice makes a tangy sauce that my family loves served over rice. Add a salad, and you have a healthy, quick meal. I allow one chicken breast per person."

I thought the sauce was a little bitter, so I added some brown sugar and it was fine. I would make this recipe again.

Great Orange flavor--a bit bland-not spicy enough--will add some sort of a hot sauce next time I make it.

I ended up cutting the recipe in half. Cooking for just myself and my husband, I knew the recipe would be way too much. In saying that, after making the necessary adjustment, my husband and I were quite pleased with the out come. Wonderful flavor! I served it with basmati rice.

The sauce was very sweet and I had mixed reviews by the people I served it to. I had all of the ingredients at home so that was a plus!

This was the best Chicken ala orange I ever had. Even my wife was able to cook it.

A bit sweet for our tastes. Probably wouldn't make it again.

This was a very easy one to make. The orange sauce complimented the chicken very well, but I did not enjoy it over rice. My husband (who is not hard to please!) liked it very much. Instead of making it from scratch again, I am keeping the leftover orange sauce for the next time, and will just simmer the chicken in it.
