Just finished dinner with this recipe served over jasmine rice -- we loved it! My husband and four- and two-year-old sons both devoured it. I used 2tsp of cornstarch in place of the flour and half the amount of scallions. I didn't have OJ concentrate so I subsituted 1/2 the water with regular orange juice. Made a wonderful sauce that was perfect atop white rice. I recommend adding the mandarins just prior to serving -- I cooked them too long and they disintegrated. No added salt is needed as the bullion cubes provide more than enough. This recipe would work really well with beef or shrimp as well. A definite keeper! Read More

I wasn't impressed with this recipe. It was easy and quick to prepare but not as good as other mandarin chicken or beef I've made. I feel that the addition of canned mandarin orange slices detracted from the dish a great deal. Read More

We both enjoyed this dish over rice as others suggested. It is very colorful and would be nice enough for a casual company meal. Easy to do some of the steps ahead (cook the chicken broccoli etc) so there is little to do at the last minute. Heed the advice of a previous reviewer: don't cook the mandarin oranges.:) Read More

Very good and very easy. Doubled broccoli & mushrooms used 1 1/2 lbs. chicken cooked mushrooms more than recipe said & had to add more butter to pan when mushrooms were done. Wisked flour w/melted butter before adding 1 cup OJ(skipped concentrate & water).Added onions and broccoli same time as chick & rooms. Waited until very end to add two cans of Man. oranges (already at room temp). Just mixed & served over rice. Read More

Excellent flavor not to sweet just different enough to make it special. I don't ever use bullion cubes (MSG) so I used 2 packages of Lipton Cup-a-Soup Cream of chicken instead of the cubes and left out the flour. Take the advice of others add the can of orange segments at the very end of the process. Read More

Easy and quick recipe for a change in chicken preparation. Instead of using the 1/3 cup of OJ concentrate and 2/3 cup water I used orange juice 100% -- and also added the drained juice from the mandarin oranges. A bit more sauce would have been desired. Enjoy! Read More
