      Well Kari, I made this as promised, and it was great! I scaled the recipe down to serve 1 (me) and made it for dinner tonight. I used olive oil instead of butter, half a fresh Thai Birdseye Chilli instead of dry flakes, and I reduced the sauce again after I added the juice and honey etc. Tonight I ate it with roasted potatoes, garlic mushrooms, baby peas and an Australian reisling. I wish you could have shared it with me!

      This chicken recipe was okay, nothing special. I was really looking forward to the citrus taste, but didn't get much of it. I think it would have been better if the orange (after reduction) would have been injected into the chicken.

      YUMMY ! I am so glad that I made this. Most of the orange chicken recipes that I've tried are so ingredient heavy and take a ton of prep time. This one is so easy and taste as good as the other recipes. I wouldn't change anything about the recipe. It was spicy enough for me and I wouldn't add any more heat unless you really like it extra hot. I didn't serve it over rice or noodles. I just used it as the main meat alone. I am hosting 12 ladies at my house this week and I am going to make chicken bites with this same recipe. I also used my leftovers on top of a salad and I must say the sauce makes a great salad dressing so that's good enough reason to double the sauce next time. Thanks Malriah !
