Since we're only a family of three, I cut the recipe in half. It was well enjoyed by all. I didn't have the mandarin oranges on hand (mix up on the grocery list), so I made it without those and used pork instead of chicken (since I don't eat chicken). The orange flavor sneaks up on you a bit, but in a delightful way. I look forward to being able to pull some out of the freezer for a delicious quick supper.
