Years ago, I got a batch of tried and true from my internet pal, Sylvia in Montreal (later of Ottawa). This is one of them. Very easy to make. Very easy to eat. This is really fast food that's good for you.

I found I didn't care for the taste of the orange rind and ended up picking it out. I'm still giving the recipe 5 stars though, as the sauce is lovely and matches with the chicken and red pepper perfectly. I had no pepper flakes, so instead I used minced chilli and fried it off with the garlic and ginger. Added a nice hot bite to it. I used some julienne-cut zucchini as well since I love lots of vegetables. Thanks for a lovely dinner!
