  • We really enjoyed this. I used half chicken stock and half orange juice and left out the orange peel. Served it over brown rice. Tomorrow we'll have the leftovers and serve it with cousous.

    Next time, I'll try cooking the rice with the chicken. Great recipe and thanks for sharing.

  • Excellent, though the orange peel makes it a bit too bitter. I think I'll use 1/2 Cup of OJ next time instead. Beautiful coloring properties. - 12/21/08

  • I made some changes (purely because that's what I had in the pantry). Chicken breast instead of thighs, a tsp. of ground instead of fresh ginger & I replaced 1/4 of the stock with orange juice. I loved this recipe, although my family were not so keen (they have no imagination about food). Wonderful! - 9/19/08

    Glad you liked it, I did too, I served it with Couscous. My son liked everything, but the actual chicken thigh, I think I will use skinless, boneless breasts next time.
    This is a recipe I use to bring inflamation down. I had a severe reaction to celebrex.
