Marinated Orange Stir Fry Chicken

"This is a great flavored quick fix dinner. We sometimes add red pepper flakes into the marinade just before cooking it for some extra ZIP. Glorious over steamed Jasmine rice. Prep time includes marinade time."

  1. Nice blend of flavours, I included the chillie flakes, got a nod of approval from friends. I threw in some red capsicum and some small broccoli florets.
  2. This was a great stir-fry, Michelle. I ended up using 3 cloves garlic, because we realllly like it. The sauce had a nice orange-soy sauce flavor that we liked. I used the pea pods but also thew in a few sliced mushrooms and water chestnuts. I served it over steamed Jasmine rice, like you suggested. We had a terrific dinner. Thanks for the recipe.
  3. Great flavour witth added chili - I also bump up the vegetables with water chesnuts, bamboo shoots, baby corn and red capsicum.
  4. I enjoyed making this dish; it goes together very quickly, the chicken only needs to marinade for 15 minutes although a little longer wouldn't hurt. Once the marinading is done, the cooking part goes lickety-split. I also used an 8 ounce bag of fresh pea pods as another reviewer noted. Overall it was a good chicken dish that goes together very easily. Made for Chinese New Year review game.
  5. This was a very nice stir fry. I followed the directions exactly except that my package of snow peas was 8 oz, not 6, & I needed to make a 2nd batch of marinade. I read through the directions too quickly & neglected to save half. No big deal. The meal went together with very little effort & it tasted great.
