“This is a recipe for spicy citrus chicken that I picked up at a Sam's Club demonstration. It is VERY delicious. The original recipe did not have the juice of one orange, but I love the added flavor (sometimes the citrus spices aren't enough). Also, I suggest kicking up the hot sauce to a full cup for added flavor! (Do NOT use a Louisiana style hot sauce, only Frank's Red Hot or similar, like Krystals)”
