This is a really tasty and easy recipe. The only change I made was to put the chicken on a vertical roaster instead of leaving it in a dish to bake. Also, it might help to put the butter on the chicken first and then add the spices. This way the spices will adhere to the chicken better. Overall, the chicken was very tasty and the orange soda makes a nice glaze. THanks for the keeper recipe:)
