"This was really tasty. I used boneless chicken breasts and browned them for a few minutes on each side in crushed garlic and butter. I simmered the sauce in a separate large pan and threw in some chop..." See moreped green onions, red pepper flakes, orange zest, cornstach for thickness, and omitted the cranberries. Then I put the browned chicken in with the sauce and cooked it till it was no longer pink inside. Then I sliced the breast up and served in on a bed of rice, topped with a little extra sauce. It was really REALLY good. The leftovers tasted even better because the orange flavor soaked through the meat."

"Update: 1.Use boneless chicken (bones are a hassle). 2. Marinade the chicken in some soy sauce and chopped garlic. 3. If you want the sauce thicker, add a little cornstarch. 4. Optional: Too sweet? I..." See more like sweet food but for those who want to cut the sweetness, a) reduce the OJ and add some low sodium chicken stock or b)add a splash of rice vinegar...however this changes the recipe to a sweet and sour recipe."
"Super recipe! And soooo easy. My husband & I both loved it. The only thing I changed was the cranberries. I had dried Michigan cherries in my fridge so I used them(finally a use those cherries) and ..." See moream glad I did because they were a tad tart. Also, I took about a cup of the juice and thickened it a little for a sauce which was also a hit with the Mister. This is a keeper. Thanks, Jaynine!"
