For PAC Spring 2010. Absolutely a do again. I have to admit ... I strayed from the recipe. I had oranges that needed using up, so used the orange juice instead of the water. AND because I am I making your Apricot Ginger Chicken for dinner and had way too much brandy for anything I'll ever use, I added 2 T apricot brandy to the mix. Thought I had walnuts on hand, didn't, so used pecans. But the outcome was fabulous. Thanks for the recipe! I'm giving you 5 stars!
