      Our family did not care for this recipe. The orange peel flavor was way too strong (and I used less than 1/2 of the amount called for in the recipe). Sorry Dancer^, we will not be making this again.

      I made this dish a few days ago and it was very tasty! To make my chicken crisp, I dipped the chicken pieces into egg whites then put them into a ziplock bag with flour, a bit of salt and pepper. Shaking to coat well. This was easy to make and was delicous served with Jasmine rice.
