Very good, but not quit as spicy as we like. Will make again.

Really good - sadly I didn't have any oranges - will definitely add next time. It would be easy enough to play around with some spices to mix it up a bit.

One of my favorite go-to recipes! Instead of serving the chicken with oranges I actually throw clementine or orange slices into the pot while the chicken is cooking, and they end up falling apart and adding a great, citrusy element to the sauce

This dish has so much flavor! I continue to be amazed by the simplicity of the ingredients that produce such depth. This has been great every time I've made it, even when I've made terrible substitutions (like pomegranate balsamic vinegar in place of white vinegar - still delicious!). I usually use brown rice instead of white. It's very easy and is lovely for company when it's put out on a platter surrounded by orange slices.

This is one of my all time favorite Cooking Light recipes. It is so tasty, the flavor is perfect. The rice is amazing with this sauce.Even my young kids ask for it by name....
