    To make the orange flavor less overpowering, I used a cup of OJ ( juice of one fresh and the rest bottled) and 1-1/4 cup chicken stock. Served with rice noodles and put some of the water in the sauce to help thicken. Added broccoli

    It just tastes like straight up orange juice on chicken with no other flavour.

    My sauce didn’t turn out as orange as the sauce in the picture, but it was still delicious overall. The sauce also took longer to thicken than the directions stated.

    Cooked the sauce like instructed never thickened at all. I even put a little flour hoping it would thicken but I was cooking the sauce for almost an hour so I was really disappointed with the recipe looks good but something might wrong in the instructions

    Not as pictured. Too liquified. Very pale looking chicken.

    I ended up adding steamed carrot, zucchini and rice which definitely contributed to the dish. It wasn’t one of my favourite dishes and I felt like it lacked flavour.

    Made this numerous times...always delicious. It did take some time for the sauce to thicken but totally worth the wait. I would actually like to try with boneless chicken thighs and maybe make it all in my insta pot. 👍🏼

    Tonights dinner was derived from this recipe. I Instant-potted 3 large frozen chicken breasts and made the sauce on the stove and poured it over shredded cooked chicken. Served with white rice and steamed broccoli and sliced oranges. The kids liked it. We were out of cornstarch so... the flavorful sauce was sopped up with the steamed broccoli.

    It was delicous! The sauce is pretty strong, but great flavor. I would recommend serving over rice. :)

    It turned out taste-wise, very good. The sauce never did thicken for me, but nothing corn starch couldn’t fix. I made a little extra sauce because I wanted more veggies. Instead of broccoli, I used snow pea pods, yellow bell pepper & canned water chestnuts. Turned out great!
