Onion-fried Mandarin Orange Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PaulaG

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.
