    Vseward (Chef~V)'s Note:

    I have been playing with this recipe for ages. I think this comes pretty close to the orange chicken that I enjoy at my favorite chinese restaurant. Served over steamed rice or fried rice makes it a one-dish meal. I sprinkle chopped green onions on mine. Yum.

      Rave reviews at the dinner table last night. I just made more sauce and threw in red pepper strips and sugar snap peas and served with rice noodles instead of rice. Will be making this again

      I know this is a silly thing to say considering I am rating ORANGE chicken but it was too "orangey" for me. I think it was the orange zest that overdid it. My DH loved it and the chicken (before the sauce) was very flavorful and tender. The completed dish looked very much like what you would be served at a restaurant. I will make again without the zest and maybe less sugar. We served it with brown rice. Thank you!!

      I found the look and taste of this recipe to be pretty spot on. If I had put this into take-out boxes I'm sure they wouldn't have known the difference. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing it!
