Chicken With Orange-Soy Salsa (Light)

"I adapted this recipe of R. Reisman to make it with chicken breasts - I have also made it with chicken thighs - and both ways are really really good! You can use hot salsa for extra spice."

    Loved the dish--doubled the sauce(always do) made as directed and it was wonderful--made a second time and threw in a couple handfulls of tri colored bell pepper that I had cut up for a stir fry--nice twist--goes in the family approved repeat file--Thanks Redsie--

    I'll decrease the amount of honey next time, but overall it tasted good!

    Delicious and makes a lot. I made the whole recipe and then froze in meal-size portions with the Foodsaver vacuum machine. Next time I may try cooking it from beginning to end in a large electric fry pan to eliminate the two-step process. Will definitelyy make again. Thanks, Redsie!

    I had a hankering for orange chicken with broccoli, but saw this recipe and decided to try it instead. Wonderfully easy to make and delicious. I tossed some fresh broccoli with the chicken and sauce and put it in the oven. I'll make this again for sure! Thanks for sharing.

    Yum! My chicken breasts were around 2 pounds of meat (big breasts!) so I did one-and-a-half portions of all the sauce ingredients. This was plenty. I also simmered it on the stove for about 10-15 minutes, instead of baking it. Finally, I tossed the chicken and sauce with a whole pound of whole wheat linguine, and it covered it all nicely. Served with steamed broccoli and cheesy garlic bread with tomato slices and basil.
