      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.

      Substitutions:
      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.

      I adjusted this recipe to please my 14-year-old. I only used 1/2 tsp minced ginger root instead of 1 T. For the Orange Sauce I used 1 1/2 T soy sauce, 1 1/2 T orange guice, 4 T sugar, 5 T white vinegar, orange zest to taste. I also serve it with toasted sesame seeds on top as it is done in the fine dining restos in New York City.

      This had pretty good flavor, however I don't believe it tasted exactly like Panda's version. I made as directed except that I stir-fryed instead of deep fried and I also forgot the ginger. I used 3 chicken breasts and doubled the sauce. A single serving of of sauce would not have been enough. This made enough for 2 adults and 2 children with a little left over for lunch. I served with Take-Out Fried Rice #156590. All in all not a bad recipe and one that I will definitely make again. I gave it four stars simply because it didn't taste exactly like Panda's version.

      I really enjoyed this chicken dish, and although it looks like it might be difficult it is quite easy. Prep and have everything ready and you will not be disappointed in this! I used a tad more red pepper flakes and also used ground ginger as I had no gingeroot. For my first try at Orange Chicken I will say that this is something I will be making again. Thank you! :)
