This was good, but I tweaked it a little to make it my own. First, I dusted my cut up chicken with cornstarch because I wanted mine somwhat traditional. I also thickened my sauce at the end by adding a slurry (cornstarch and water mixed together). I added some crushed red pepper to take it up a notch in spiciness. I will definitely be making this again with my tweaks.

Great chicken stir fry! I left out the scallions, otherwise made as directed. The citrus and ginger flavors were terrific in this; I'll up the crushed red pepper flakes a bit next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT6, Zwizzle Chicks

This was truly tasty and easy to put together. I added about a teaspoon of cornstarch to the hoisin/juice mixture to thicken it, and also added some orange peel slivers to the red pepper while it cooked. I also threw in a few hot dried chiles. Other than than that, I made this exactly as posted. The orange and the spiciness went well together, and I also agree that this is so much better than the deep-fried method. Thanks for sharing this.

Very flavorful chicken. We love orange chicken, but I've never been crazy about the usual deep-fried method. This is great because it's a healthier take on Orange Chicken. The only thing I might do differently next time is to add a thickening agent (like cornstarch) to the sauce. We served this atop rice and had steamed broccoli. Delicious and healthy dinner. Thank you! ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zany Zesty Cooks~
