I made this recipe and it turned out great the first time. All this of course, after I zested myself :-) But the orange sauce was not to heavy, not too lite, just right!!

This was a great recipe! I tasted just like the Orange Chicken at Applebee's, and it was relatively simple to make! Everyone loved it!

This is my husband's favorite from Applebee's, and he PREFERS the homemade version! I made the recipe, as is, no changes. Enjoy!

After eating this at Applebees I looked for the recipe online and found this version. Everytime I make it I get asked for the recipe. I didnt make any substitutions or changes. Great as it is! You can cook the chicken ahead of time and then add the sauce later so that it doesnt get soggy. The chicken is moist and great even without the sauce.

Having never had the Applebee's version of this I wasn't sure what it was supposed to taste like. I halved the recipe, but made as stated at first. I thought the hoisin sauce was a little much, so I messed around with it, adding more oj and sugar until it was edible. Sounded super yummy, but unfortunately, this was a one timer for me.

Great weekday recipe! It tasted great, too. I made it exactly as recipe stated and used Birdseye Steamed veggies. I will make this again because everyone LOVED it! Thanks for a good one!

AWESOME!!! I made this with popcorn chicken to save time and added Birdseye Steamed veggies (with snowpeas and water chestnuts). It turned out great!

I give this a high five star! I only made the sauce as I was looking for something to glaze our baked skinless chicken breasts with and it was truly delicious. Will make again for sure. Thanks for posting!

I loved it! I made it with stir fry veggies and served it over a jasmine wild rice mixture. It tasted just like Applebees. The reason for 4 stars in stead of 5 is because my family hated it (but they also hate applebees version too,) I will make it again and freeze extra portions for me.
