    wife2abadge's Note:

    From the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook. I posted it as it appears in the cookbook, but I would have liked more broccoli in it. Also, my sauce never really thickened, so I might skip the water next time and just use the juice and broth to cook the broccoli. I used the minced ginger in a jar to save time.

      Our family loves orange chicken. This recipe is not quite the gusto of the restaurants version (of course not because this is calorie friendly), but for a diet version this recipe works! Family enjoyed this just as well and I'm sure our waist lines are thanking us.

      I chose this recipe while trying to find recipes to use up a crate of fresh oranges. I made it for myself, DD and her BFF (both 5 years old and picky). Both girls had seconds! The sauce thickened up just fine for me, and my only change next time would be to add a little extra ginger. There was just a little something missing in the flavor and I think a little stronger ginger might take care of that. :) Thanks for posting, wife2abadge!

      The points work out to 5 a serving. Using medium high heat to brown the chicken works better. Also, increase the cornstarch to 1 tablespoon so that the sauce thickens properly. Great flavor and hearty portion size! Thanks for sharing!!
