What a great tasting dish for a mere 9% fat and 3.4g of sugars! Aside from using approx 3/4 tsp of cinnamon I made this as written using canned Mandarin oranges. It's so quick and simple (a bit of chicken pounding and your home free) There is almost nothing to do. I paired it with whole wheat couscous and steamed broccoli.
Very mild... too mild for my family, really! But it was a good start for future experimentation. My kids liked it. I cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces before cooking, and also added a little ginger powder. I used navel oranges... blood oranges would indeed be great color!
I wasn't really a big fan of the sauce for this recipe, I used a fresh orange, and regular marmalade, I don't know if that's what altered the taste, but I really didn't like it. However, I added about 1 - 2 tbsp of soy sauce, and it made a huge difference. I'll probably make this recipe again, but with the added soy sauce.
I loved how easy this was to prepare and the subtle hint of spiciness from the cayenne. I used a small can of mandarin oranges. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I knew I would love this when I picked in in a Zaar game. I just love cooking with oranges. It was delicious. Blood oranges would give it a lovely color variation - I may do that next time.
Quick & easy to make, low cal, low fat, low colesterol, high taste - what more can you ask for?? I used tinned Mandarin oranges & Smucker's No Sugar Added Orange Spread. Thanx Toni!
