      I've gotta say that the sauce was pretty gross to me. I made some substitutions which may partly explain the awful flavor. Or perhaps it's because I multiplied this up to 18 servings and something didn't scale right. In any case... the sauce was way too bitter and tasted like it needed a ton more sugar or way less orange zest.

      Chicken Stock -> Chicken Ramen Broth
      Orange Juice -> Tang
      Rice Wine -> Sherry
      Orange Zest -> Orange Peel from a store shaker (probably where the bitterness came from)

      delicious sauce but the fried coating wasn't the same as panda express. My husband and I still loved it and I'll definitely be making this sauce much more.

      This dish takes way to long to realistically be a regular family meal. In addition, although it tasted fine, it did not remotely remind me of the panda express version. If you make this recipe, be sure to multiply the sauce ingredients by 10, as the portions listed do not make enough sauce to cover one serving,let alone the 2 lbs of chicken called for.
