    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This is a great combination of flavors, orange, chicken and snow peas. The chicken isn't battered first so it's a little lighter than some other orange chicken recipes. Originally from a December 1980 Bon Apetit magazine in the R.S.V.P. Letters to the Editor section. The recipe was requested from Le De'lice restaurant in Whippany, New Jersey, owner/chef John Foy.

      Great recipe. I could not find the amount of sesame oil for step number 5 so I just added a drop. I zested the orange peel and did not soak in water. It was very quick, easy and delicious. Served it with fried rice and snow peas. Thanks!

      This was another main dish that I shared with a neighbor couple & we all enjoyed it immensely! As with Susie (previous reviewer) I didn't soak the zest, since I wanted that orange flavor to come right on through! Very satisfying, very flavorful chicken & another keeper of a recipe!
