Geema, this was so much fun to prepare and we enjoyed our dinner so much! Such a nice combination of flavors! I prepared as directed, but next time I make it, I think I will add a touch more orange juice and hosin sauce to make a bit more sauce because it was sooooo good! I served it over rice as you suggested. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us, Geema!

Very enjoyable and easy to prepare. I used fresh mandarin oranges rather than canned which were good and very pretty in the dish. I used one whole bunch of green onions, doubled the cashews and used the two to top the dish before serving.

This was a nice, quick dish on a busy weeknight. I loved how easily it all came together. I followed earlier reviews and increased the sauce. We had it over jasmine rice with some stir-fried veggies. There was a bit of leftover chicken so will be using it tomorrow to make Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad; great to have multiple ways to use one recipe. Thanks so much for posting! :)
