Orange marmalade and freshly grated orange zest make a deliciously tangy sauce for quick-cooking chicken tenders. Serve with brown rice.

"I made the recipe exactly as stated except I used chicken breasts instead of tenders because I happened to have them in the house. For a very low fat, low calorie recipe, my boyfriend and I both really liked it and I would definitely...

Easy and Tasty

I left out the vinegar and mustard, but otherwise followed the recipe and it was a great easy dinner.

Great flavour; easy
Easy to make but not an exciting dish

I followed this recipe "as is" and thought it was good, though a little bland. I was expecting more of an orange flavor, to be honest. I had no problems getting the sauce to thicken with 1 tsp of cornstarch as stated in the recipe and thought it coated the chicken really nicely. I can definitely see this as a good starting point, though, with some tweaking. :)

Very good, but a few changes needed

After making this, I'm going to change the following:
1. 1/4 Cup Orange Marmalade
2. 1 Tablespoon dijon
3. 1/2 Tablespoon cornstarch
As is, the sauce is a bit too runny and doesn't spoon out well over the chicken. It could also use a wee bit more flavor (I didn't include the shallots because my B/F can't do onions), so I'm going to beef up the marmalade, dijon and cornstarch to hopefully resolve this issue. Quite a nice dish! I'm looking forward to trying it with the adjustments!

Relatively simple and quite flavorful
I made only two changes to this recipe and it was perfect!

Very very tasty meal and easy to make. However, I wasn't a fan of the sauce the first time. I found it too watery. The second time I made it, I did two teaspoons of cornstarch instead of one, and the sauce was perfect! Nicer, thicker consistency. I also microwaved a sweet potato for 10 min. +/- depending on the size of it, cut it up and added it to the recipe and it was MMMMMMMMMMM. Sweet potato and orange go so well together.

Easy to make, very tasty.
Yummy for the whole family

This was a simple and delicious meal that my entire family loved. The sauce was thinner than I thought but it was perfect! We served it with 90 second brown chicken rice and steamed broccoli.

Fast, easy, healthy, crowd pleaser
