    Very Good
    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
