I followed the recipe for the sauce exactly, but decided against even trying it on the chicken. I am sublimely curious as to why other people got different results. I used Smuckers orange marmalade, and I quadruple check the recipe proportions. The combination of the marmalade, vinegar, olive oil, and sage just looked revolting, like a black goop coated in oil. This didn't change when I warmed it in the saucepan as directed. I have no idea how black translates to orange chicken, but it smelled strongly of vinegar and just tasted strange. My husband ended up just dumping it in the sink while I was re-reading and re-reading the recipe. Neither of us can figure out why this happened and why it wasn't reported in other reviews, and we ultimately just found another recipe for orange-ish sauce on this website, which was still mediocre. My search for a good orange chicken recipe is still ongoing.
