  1. I tried this recipe hoping it would be an easier version of the popular Asian-American dish. I knew slacking off by using less ingredients would make for a less desirable dish but on a college budget I figured this would do. Turns out this recipe is nothing like the orange dishing I was hoping to resemble. My boyfriend described it as "chicken with orange juice on it." Although this was easy the overall dish was dry and not very appealing and it's nothing like the orange chicken I was looking for.
  2. We eat chicken a lot around this house, & this dish is great! Enjoyed the JO & ginger combo! It was a winner served over brown rice! Thanks much for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a tagged bonus recipe for one of my invitees to AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]


I live in Kansas with my hubby and our two beautiful babies. The one thing I told my husband when we got together was he could not be a picky eater and he has to do the dishes!! :) I figured I should change this because it said I work at home and I recently got a job at a fabulous salon/spa. I am skin care specialist (Esthetician) there, and I love it. My hours are flexible so I still get to spend plenty of time with my kiddo's and of course on recipezaar every chance I get! I grew up with a mother that doesn't like to cook so I basically learned how to cook on my own when I was out of the house :) I didn't know I would like to do it so much! Oh, and "Red Chef Mama" is because I have all red in my kitchen (towels, plates, untensils, you name it) and of course I'm a mom! :) <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Hebe-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg">
