This sauce is wonderful! If you like oranges you will love this! Took no time at all to make in a small saucepan on the stove. I used a 15 ounce can of mandarin oranges and that worked fine. The aroma and flavor of the sauce is amazing! Light and fresh pudding texture sauce with great orange flavor. Will refrigerate this overnight and serve with grilled chicken breast.
