We needed a new chicken recipe - this one came to me in an e-mail from Smithfield, and the boys and I really enjoyed the sweet/spicy flavor.

Good! Simple to fix stir-fry with enough chili garlic sauce to have some heat. Orange marmalade was a nice compliment. My family really enjoyed it. Today I got lost in your recipes and bookmarked many to try soon. Thanks for posting!
