    Quest4ZBest's Note:

    I got this recipe from McCormick. This recipe has a unique contrast of flavor, is healthy, uses ingredients that most people have on hand, and is so good! I have altered it a little from the original. I like to serve over rice with crunchy wonton strips on top (original recipe used wonton cups, no rice & served as an appetizer). I double the sauce when I make it because it's that good! I don't know of many asian resaurants that make a dish this great!

      This is absolutely wonderful! I wouldn't have come up with this combination of spices and flavors but it really works. Made a quick weekday meal that was very popular with my entire family. Uses ingredients on hand which is so convenient, too. Spinach cooks down very quickly so instead of chopping, I just threw in a handful of baby spinach. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I'll fix this again! Made for PAC Fall 2007.

      We thought this was mediocre and won't be making it again. I also wouldn't necessarily call it "healthy". It is low fat, but the sauce is almost completely sugar, between the jam and the orange juice. One serving has 1/2 of my daily caloric intake.

      This was delicious--made it exactly as written and would not change one thing about this recipe.
