I used chicken breasts and scored them. I added the liquid from a can of pineapple chunks (used pineapples for another recipe; could use about 1/2 c pineapple juice instead), 1/2 t ginger, 1/8 t minced garlic, 1/4 t minced onion and marinated for several hours (turning once) before cooking. I covered the pan with foil for the whole cooking time. The meat was tender and the sauce had a good teriyaki flavor without any orange taste. There was a lot of extra sauce which was used for dipping and rice, but still might cut down sauce ingredients next time.

Don't know how I really feel about this one. I had 8 boneless tenderloins, and I used the entire can of soda. I probably should have only used half, b/c some pieces had an overwhelming orange taste. 10 yo son really loved it though, so I will definitely make again. Going to read the reviews again and see what I could do different and maybe improve on this. Definitely worth a try since it was so easy and simple!!

I used light soy sauce and boneless skinless chicken breasts and reduced the cooking time to 40 minutes (at 350) cooking 20 minutes on each side. The sauce was a little thin, but this may have been due to the light soy sauce. I ended up pouring the sauce through a strainer (like you would gravy) into a sauce pot and then thickened it with 2 Tbsp corn starch and water. The result was a terrific orange sauce/glaze that I poured over the breasts. I also made rice pilaf on the side and the sauce tasted really good with it. Next time I might try adding some orange zest to the sauce. Overall this recipe is very good.

This was really good. I don't know that I think it's quite what I expected from a 'Teriyaki Chicken' it's more like Orange chicken, but it was delicious! My company and all the children involved really enojed it. I will definitely make again since it was so good and so simple.

This recipe is a definate for my "recipe box"! I have used this recipe for three occasions since I discovered It on all recipes.com. It is amazing how much orange flavor the orange soda imparts. I have given it to friends and they love it! I gave it to a 10yr old. His comment was "This is too easy!" "Lil Bunch"
