We really enjoyed this recipe which has delicious flavor and wonderful texture. I did wish the orange flavor had been a little more noticeable. I think when I make it again I will leave out the chicken broth and increase the orange juice by 1/4 cup, as well as add some orange zest. Thank you for sharing this tasty and healthy recipe.

I love the ingredients of this recipe! I did add zest of 1 orange (which turned out to be 1 TBSP.) because I like zest and I wanted a little more orange flavor than toasted sesame oil because that type oil is strong to me but good. I liked it a lot. I am gonna try it with just a bunch of broccoli next time because I really liked the broccoli with this sauce.
