"One of my favorite recipes! The combination of paprika and mustard powder really offsets the sweetness of the orange juice. I tend to eyeball when cooking, so if you cook more breasts or use a large pan, make extra sauce to baste with. I'll frequently use extra glaze when baking just so there's plenty to pour over rice once it's done!" — tigerpaws

Really good and fresh tasting. I was glad to see a citrus recipe that didn't automatically turn to an Asian flavor. This didn't really make a glaze. It was mostly liquid, but really good flavor. I will definitely make this again!
My report is just a little different from the others because somehow the flavors just seemed like they were swimming in oil and couldn't be savored. I wondered if there was an error in the amount of oil. I tried to cook down the sauce after removing the chicken, but that didn't really work. The chicken itself turned out moist and tasty, but I had to dunk the leftovers in Trader Joe's Sweet Chili Sauce (a nice complement). I think I will try this again using only a tablespoon or so of oil and orange juice concentrate----or maybe the orange juice, a little oil, and Dijon mustard. I'll give it another try! Sorry about my review!
Great and easy recipe. I switched mustard with cumin but still game out great! Very good meal to make in the week or ahead of time to heat up during the week.
This wasn't terrible, however, it was very bland. I also added cumin along with the paprika as someone mentioned cumin in a review. The "sauce" never really turned into a sauce. It was more of a juice. The chicken was juicy, but not very appealing. Everyone ate it, but I wouldn't make it again.
This so good! I put everything together (half the salt because I'm on a sodium restricted diet)in a large plastic zip-lock bag breaking up the orange zest in the bag and marinated it for an hour. I took the chicken out onto the baking sheet and poured 1/2 the liquid over all of it and baked it for 1/2 hour. It wasn't as brown as the photo but it was definitely orangy and very moist. I highly recommend!
Great taste and stayed Very juicy! I will make this again
My husband says it needed more sauce. However we both agree it was somewhat healthy.
A nice change for the standard chicken breast. Served it with toasted brown rice - plenty of sauce and very healthy. :-)
