    I added onions to the recipe and reduced the honey to 1/4 cup. Hubby would have liked waterchestnuts too but we didnt have any. In retrospect I wish I had added garlic too.

    A good basic quick simple stir fry. I used chicken and for dietary reasons only used 1/2 cup orange juice and 1 1/2 tablespoons honey and used 2 mediums carrots juliened, snow peas and baby bok choy (shredded leaves which I added at the last minute and juliened the stems which I added after the carrots and snow peas had cooked for a minute or two) and I roasted my cashews in a dry pan which I added just before serving to keep maximum crunch. I would have liked the taste of the ginger to come out more and would consider stir frying some fresh ginger with the vegetables to enhance the flavour but we did enjoy that slight sweetness from the honey and orange juice curbed by the saltiness from the soy. Thank you KateL

    Delicious-love the hint of orange in this! Beautiful, easy, and uses ingredients I always have on hand which I appreciate tremendously! The only thing maybe I would change is to reduce the honey to 1/4 cup. Made as part of Top Favorites of 2008 game for her MCTP (Most Completed Tag Player) win. Thanks for posting a keeper, KateL.

    I just have to give this full marks for both taste and ease of preparation. I replaced the honey with Splenda for personal requirements and added some sliced cremini mushrooms. This is very forgiving and adaptable to individual needs and likes. I loved the orange sauce and the way it all comes together is a real delight.

    Awesome! I made this 2 nights in a row... it is that good. I used the juice of tangerines I had on hand instead of orange juice. I left out the nuts, too. I added a clove of minced garlic to the carrots and celery on the second night. Very nice. Thanks for posting this recipe, KateL!
