Meh. The orange part was ok I guess.

The flavor was good (though I added significantly more seasoning, red pepper flakes, and substituted orange for pineapple), but the chicken was dry and the sauce ended up being way too liquidy. I’ll make this again since it’s so quick and easy, but next time I’ll make sure to reduce the sauce on the stove first.

Very tasty. Even the grandkids liked it!

Chicken was definitely juicy, I thought it needed just a couple more things to make it more flavorful. I will cook this again but I will add some lemon pepper to the mixture.

Delicious! I also pan roasted first with olive oil.

I switched it up a bit. I used half the citrus mix and 2tb EVO and pan seared in my large cast iron pan. After a nice glaze coating was on the chicken I poured the rest of the citrus mixture, half sliced onion and quarter Bella mushrooms in the pan and fixed off in the oven for 10-15min. Served over egg noodles.

Good! Skillet first before baking works best!

I really like the citrusy flavor of the chicken! Served over a bed of cauliflower rice. Yum! I baked the chicken in a conventional oven, so it started to get a bit dry and the top didn't glaze over like in the picture! I definitely will make it again!

Delicious, lovely with salad.

A little dry, but overall good.

Excellent put it on pasta and poured the pan drippings over it! Didn't use the zest or orange all I had was lemon juice and lime juice, still turned out great!

This was a delicious and very flavorful citrus chicken recipe I read some other reviews that said it was land and the sauce was too liquidy so I first heated the sauce and made it into more of a reduction glaze. The chicken turned out moist and tasty!

They were good but nothing like the picture. The "sauce" is super watery and doesn't stick to the chicken. I baked them in a glass dish and poured the whole liquid mix over them. After they were done I let it sit for a bit until it was thicker and poured it over the chicken. Made them more flavorful!

This turned out ok. The chicken was juicy and tender but the flavor was a little too bland for my taste.
Pysia 3 Nov 2016
It's definitely healthy and I can see people adding this chicken to their salad. By itself I think you need to tweak the recipe a bit to fit your taste but its a nice easy recipe.

This recipe was very delicious. It was fun to eat. I had fun cooking this recipe. I want to make this recipe, again. I made it in the airfryer, but did not fry it. Just aired it inside, it's like baking.

It came out okay. I had to put more honey but it still came out watery and not sticky to the chicken like in the picture.
Lora M. 21 May 2016
Love it. I followed the recipe given, sort of. Took one whole orange, one whole line, one whole lemon. Use those for zest thing and juicing the whole fruit, and 4 fresh chicken breast. However, I covered each piece of chicken with extra honey across the top of the chicken right before serving. Everyone seems to love it.

Delicious! I will definitely make this again. I wasn't sure I was going to like it because the sauce was very citrusy before baking, but the flavor a were amazing after cooking.
