    Instead of using chicken breast, i tried legs. I leave the chicken in the mixture for a few hours so the orange, onion & mustard can marinate together. Put the butter on & in the oven. When it comes out, its nice & juicy. Such a quick & easy recipe!!  -  14 Jun 2009


    Really easy to prepare, sauce thickens as it cools. I used a lot less sugar than the recipe listed and it still turned out good. Served with dinner rolls and salad. Thanks for sharing  -  28 Aug 2011


    You really can't go wrong with this recipe. It's super easy to put together, makes the whole house smell great, and tastes even better! I've made it a number of times since finding the recipe a few months ago. In fact... it's in the oven as we speak!  -  15 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
