    I also used the orange/lemon approach and thought the flavour on the chicken was pretty good. I did however go with the same amount of marinade for 8 thighs so that might have done it. I also thought the cooking time was too long. I pulled them at 45 and they were done. For me there is too much oil in this recipe. The resulting pan sauce is far too fatty for our test. That said, I think this has good bones. I would cut the oil a bit and stick with the larger amount of marinade otherwise. I would add a splash of some liquid, perhaps white wine/vermouth/pernod and then drizzle at the end with the more boozie less fatty pan sauce.

    This sounded excellent, and it smelled fantastic, but I feel there is something missing from the final result. The taste is a bit thin, and I don't know what would repair it. Cream? Cheese? Nuts? Or different spices? Maybe it would be better if I tried real bitter oranges instead of her lemon/eating orange combo. It was very easy to make, and it taste good enough to repeat, but I will keep on tinkering until I find out what's missing.
