I tried making this, But I didnt have oj concentrate, so i squeezed a few oranges. Also, I dont have a grill, so I baked the whole thing, But it came out awesome. The next day I took the left overs and I added jasmine rice to it, and made a kind of stew with the chicken on top.... mmmmmmmmm..... it was really good.
