    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    A delicious and easy version of Orange Chicken. It is sweet and tangy with a hint of spice if you chose to use the crushed red peppers. You can cook the chicken and make the sauce ahead of time to save time later if you need too. Just heat the chicken and add the sauce when the pan is hot.
