  • Reviews

  • “This dish was pretty good but a lot of work that can be avoided.I make a similar dish when grilling chicken.Melt some marmalade in a saucepan, mix in a teaspoon of sesame oil and brush chicken while it is on the grill.”

  • “Very good.I steamed my veggies and oranges on the grill in foil.Probably will use even more orange next time.”

  • “This Chicken recipe tasted great, my family really liked it. Also the left over chicked breast made great sandwiches on a kiaser rool.It did take longer to prepare than the recipies I usually make but it was worth the effort!”
