      When I read this recipe and saw the amount of cornstarch to the amount of liquid I knew that to please my family I would need to make some changess. We like a lot of sauce on our meat and rice, a medium thick sauce. Here's what I did: I sauteed the breasts, then removed to a plate. Added the green onions, jalapeno, and garlic to some cooking spray. Then I mixed 1- 14 oz can broth, all the juice from the can of oranges, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, and the 2 tablespoons cornstarch, + 1 teaspoon dried orange zest. I simmered the sauce until the right comsistency, then put the chicken and juices from the platter back and let simmer about 10-15 minutes. Then added the oranges and heated them through. The chicken breasts were large, and next time I'l do as others have suggested and cut them into smaller pieces. Served with brown rice and roasted asparagus. Lovely meal! Thanks for posting.

      Took the following liberties with this recipe ~ Cut the chicken into strips, used a small amount of green chilies instead of the jalapeno pepper, & finally used a second can of mandarin oranges (heated in the juice, but using only the orange sections) to top the chicken right before serving! VERY, VERY NICE, & a great keeper recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup cooking game]

      This is simple but has excellent flavor. The only thing I am going to do differently if I make it again is cut the chicken into smaller pieces, and maybe simmer it a liitle longer in the sauce. It didn't really soak up the enough of flavor of the yummy sauce.
