We really did not enjoy this much. I sounded good since I love citrus and chicken, but the flavor just did not do it for me.

this was pretty good. Not quite what I expected, and a little too "orangy" but that might have been the brand of marmalade I used.

As far as taste goes, this was great! Somehow I ended up with a soupy consistency (probably my own fault). I swear I used 3 cups of water as indicated. I'll definitely try it again, maybe with some pineapple added...

My husband and I loved this dish, but there's way, way too much water to make a sauce. I had to drain it before adding the marmalade and more adobo. I suggest only using a cup of H2O and adding more later if you think you need it.

This was delicious. I used an Abodo seasoning recipe from AR and left out the green pepper. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 star rating is the water. Yes it is too much. I didn't use the fiull amount and still ended up having to add a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up.

I cooked this once and never cooked it again. I didn't like the flavor, it tasted processed...I think because of the jarred stuff.

Was defintely different, but not sure that we love it.
