    Two Socks's Note:

    This is a light and easy chicken dish with a brightly-flavored sauce of Mandarin orange juice, lemon juice, soy sauce, and honey. The chicken is then served with the oranges and topped with slivered almonds and chow mein noodles on a bed of rice. The whole thing takes about 15 minutes to prepare and about 30 minutes to cook, so long as you defrosted the chicken ahead of time. Enjoy!

      I work a lot, and never cook for myself. If I do, it's something pre-prepared and all I need do is add meat, or heat in the microwave. So when I tell you that this recipe was so simple that even someone with a hectic life that simply has no cooking skills nor time can still prepare it and it tastes so delicious, it's like you bought it at a good Chinese restaurant!

      Two Socks....I prepared your dish recently,and enjoyed it...As some other reviewers mentioned the melding of the sauce tied together well.I think next time I may add some grated fresh ginger to bring it up a bit,I love the ginger flavour.I may also cut the chicken more in large cubes rather that the strips,as they had to be cut to eat anyway.Thanks for the addition to my keepers.....Don
