    PaulaG's Note:

    What a wonderful combination--caramelized onions and tender chicken complimented by a light orange sauce. Are you hungry yet? The dish is not only delicious it is quick to fix. This recipe is from Pillsbury Fast and Healthy, June 1996.

      Wow... I was very disappointed despite the good reviews from everyone else. I found the flavor was just too mild.. maybe I was expecting too much. I may try it again but play with some ginger and other seasonings.

      We've recently gone soy-free, so I was looking for an orange chicken without soy sauce. This is a good starter recipe, and I think we will continue modifying it to suit our own tastes. We aren't big on basil, so I cut it down and used cilantro and garlic to round out the flavors. Served over rice with Brussels sprouts.

      This was delicious! I loved the flavor, and did kick up the basil and salt a bit. I used a fresh clementine. I also left my onions as large rings.
