Smothered Orange Chicken

Smothered Orange Chicken created by gailanng

I originally found this recipe while browsing Food Network. I had to change a few things for my family's taste. My family loves it and I make it at least once a week. The sauce makes enough to give the chicken a good glaze. I always double the sauce recipe to have extra for the rice

    Excellent recipe! Easy to make with stuff I usually always have on hand. I live in Brazil where good Chinese food is non-existent so, lol, I've resorted to making it myself to get my fix! =) This deserves many more than just three 5-star reviews!!
