OMG This was just excellent. All the flavors went so well together. My chicken turned out very crisp, which we loved. I also added a little more red pepper flakes, cut the salt to 1/4 tsp for personal preferences and cut the peas (which I used frozen peas) to about 1/4 cup and used 2 green onions. Thanks so much for sharing. Will make this again. Made for PRMR :)

The chicken breasts I had for this dish were huge so used 4 of them & made the recipe as given! I'm always on the lookout for great new ways to fix chicken since we eat a lot of it, & this one was absolutely outstanding, but then we do enjoy fruity tastes with many of our meats, so . . . Served it over brown rice & it was a major hit! Next time I'll share it with company! Many thanks for sharing it with us! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

Makes a wonderful rice bowl. Enjoyed the crispiness of the chicken coated with all that yummy sweet and spicy sauce. The red pepper flakes add just the right amount of heat. Made as written and would not change a thing. Thanks so much for the tasty post.

FANTASTIC! I made this for my 4 children and it was delicious. Will keep as a staple. The flavors are succulent. I highly recommend. FYI- it's a little bit of work but don't despair..

Absolutely fabulous! We enjoyed this so much! What else can I say that hasn't been said? This was simply scrumptious. We were blown away at how tender, juicy, each piece was wrapped in a velvety sauce that clings to each bite. It was terrific. The fresh ginger, orange juice, fresh zest collided with the red pepper flakes and the green onions. The peas are such a unique addition as well. Definitely company grade. Our family members devoured it and wanted there to be more. I had to grab the last plate to photo or it would be gone! I served it with white sticky rice and Asian salad. Made as written except for an extra quarter cup of peas. Sheer perfection! Thanks for posting swissms! Loved it! This is a keeper for sure. Enjoy! ChefDLH

This turned out ok for us, but not a favorite. I only used 1/2of the amount of OJ and it was still very overpowering. I substituted water for the other half. I also added minced garlic and ginger to the sauce.

I made half a recipe and it turned out great. I didn't have orange zest so used 1/2 t. orange oil. We had it with rice and was a great Chinese meal.
