This was very tasty, fun and easy to whip up in the wok! I added some extra veggies: fresh sliced mushrooms, sweet bell pepper slices, green beans, matchstick carrots, onions. I omitted the broccoli because the family is not crazy about it. I cubed the chicken and needed a bit more oil (2T) in all. I heated the oil, added the garlic & ginger for 30 seconds, then added the chicken until no longer pink. Pulled the chicken out & set aside, then quickly sauteed the veggies (about 2 minutes). Added the sauce (great flavor) , chicken and warmed through. I served over rice. I did not find the flavor lacking at all. Perhaps sauteeing the garlic/ginger with the chicken helped with that. Thanks for another great recipe RBS, you never fail me! WW= 6 Power Points for 6 servings not 4 servings if made as written as recipe suggests. Add points for rice.
I cooked this for my boyfriend last night and he loved it! The dish is flavorful and the orange juice gave it that little kick of tangy-ness. It was great! The only thing I modifed was I added 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce as well to make it a bit more flavor. If you want the sauce to be thicker, also add 1 more teaspoon of cornstarch. Thanks!
