    This is a delicious recipe that needs to marinate overnight, but then comes together really quickly and deliciously.

      This was a wonderful dish, Evelyn. I did add the zest of one orange to the marinade, which I think intensifies the flavor. The sauce is really savory, which I loved, since so many orange chicken recipes seem cloyingly sweet to me. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      This was excellent. I cut the chicken up into bite size pieces, and we're not big on breading, so I added about 1/2 cup of flour and just tossed the chicken cubes to coat, and then followed the directions. I also added a little cornstarch to the marinade to make the sauce thicker. (knew that's what my kids would want)

      Absolutely loved this recipe, so easy to prepare, and so DELISH! Followed the recipe to the T except I used canola oil instead of vegetable oil. This will be a regular dish from now onwards. Thank you
