This is a lovely sweet-and-sticky meal without the guilt the family whole family will enjoy. If you are cooking with rice or another side that takes awhile to cook, prepare that first.

I made this pretty much as is using 1/2 cup orange juice 1 tsp ground ginger and 1 T. minced garlic (instead of pastes). I served it over parboiled white rice. I was concerned about the sweet-and-sour-sounding combination of ingreds because my husband hates too much sweet-and-sour but he raved over this and declared it a do-over. I served peas and carrots on the side but next time might try adding in snow peas or frozen broccoli in the last few minutes of cooking. A definite keeper! Read More

After reading all of the great reviews I m beginning to think I did something wrong. I could not get the sauce thick or sticky in the recommended cook time. I removed the chicken because it was cooked beyond dry and let the sauce continue simmering. The sauce was o.k. but I couldn t taste any orange flavor at all. It might have been better if the chicken wasn t so overcooked Read More

What a wonderful recipe! Made it for the first time this evening and everyone really enjoyed it. The only modification that I made was to add 8oz of snow peas that I had on hand. Excellent meal for a weeknight when you want something special! Read More

Very quick and tasty recipe. I amended by adding rough chopped onions and a teaspoon of cornstarch to dust the cubed chicken. Plus salt pepper and garlic powder to taste. Note: Added cornstarch makes sauce thicken quicker and creates crisped edges on stir-fried chicken cubes. Read More

This was very tasty. I think it could have used some veggies and a shake of red pepper flakes. I'll make this again Read More

A really good and easy recipe. I didn't have ginger or garlic paste; however finely chopped fresh ginger and garlic worked just fine. I sauteed red bell peppers onion and carrots and then set those aside while I cooked the chicken and the sauce. When the chicken was done I added in the veggies and mixed it all together. A definite make again! Read More

Super quick and super delicious. I can tell you the sauce as written will reduce into a perfect sticky glaze but you need to have the pan hot enough. Be advised all the honey will go from glaze to burnt very quickly once it begins to thicken I don't take my eyes off it. For our tastes we like a bit of sesame oil and hot pepper flakes for extra flavor but as written this is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing! Read More

We love this as an alternative to Panda Express's Orange chicken. We also use chili powder or red pepper flake to give it kick. I use concentrated orange juice when in bind. I also just use garlic powder and ginger powder and adjust until it tastes like we like. It is super easy if I can do it. We also double the sauce and add broccoli/frozen vegies to help it go further. Also good if you bread up chicken in cornstarch and fry then put sauce on but love it without too. we then just put over white rice and eat! Read More

This recipe was awesome! My husband and I LOVED it and we will be adding it to our regular meals. I used 1 Big orange squeezed by hand. It came out to be about half cup and then I filled up to one cup with minute maid. I used kikimoko soya sauce a teaspoon of minced garlic ( I had no paste) two minimal shakes of ginger from the spice rack ( we're not big fans of ginger) and the honey I have for my tea in the cupboard. I diced up the chicken and put it in a bowl with some corn starch and paprika for color coated the chicken and fried it up a bit before I added the liquid ingredients and added a dash of red pepper flakes - it turned out PERFECT! Absolutely loved it Read More
