    Great recipe. I substitued orange juice for the chicken broth. The glaze turned out great after simimering for about 10 mins!! Added baby carrots and beans as a side! - 3/2/09

    Wow! this was full of flavor and quite yummy. We had it with some rice and used the sauce over the rice and then had some peas. We will be making this again! - 12/28/10

    Really great! My boyfriend and I loved it...I'll be adding a bit more garlic & onion next time. The onion really adds to the sweet flavor. - 5/28/10

    This was quite easy to bring together. Even DH like it. Decreased the broth by half to 1/2 cup. Made it less soupy. Will make this again. - 4/20/10
