    Paja's Note:

    This is Szechuan type of stir fry. You can vary the spiciness by the amount of chili sauce you add. It is a very colourful dish which is nice with rice to soak up the delicious sauce.

      I would give this more than 5 stars - It was wonderful. I cut the chicken back to 12 oz but made the full sauce. I used 2 1/2 tbsp of sweet chili sauce and cut out the extra sugar.. It is such an easy recipe to propare because you can get everything ready ahead of time and then it only takes a few minutes to cook. Thangs Paja this is a keeper.

      I have made several spicy orange ginger recipes over the years. This recipe is one of the BEST!! There is no batter, no sticky sauce, just lean meat with lots of flavour. It is a new family favorite!!!We added a little extra chili peppers. THANKS-GREAT !
