    Very good. A little sweet, but I will make again since my family emptied the pan.

    Did this one tonight and was so looking forward to it. It sounded delicious but I agree with another review that there seemed to be two recipes because there were two different pictures. Apart from that I found it very salty. Could be because I used a new brand of dark soy sauce that I hadn’t tried before. I liked the batter and cooking the chicken that way, just the sauce. It’s an easy to follow recipe but DON’T clean the hob before you do this dish as it spat fat everywhere lol. My Husband said the smell of the orange sauce made him drool but agreed it was too salty. Maybe skip the garlic salt and use less soy sauce might balance things better (for my own taste). I added spring onions, sugar snap peas and red pepper (just like the 2nd picture but a lot of juggling). Next time I might cook the chicken same way but find a different sauce to try 🙂

    Really really nice. But for me it's definitely a one off, can be a bit sickly. May come back to it later in the year.

    The receipe and ingredients list on Yummly was completely different from the website it sends you to for the directions on how to make it.

    Very tasty but perhaps could do with less orange for my own personal taste. I actually used vegan chicken substitute but still tasted great

    Mine turned out a little more bitter because of orange zest added in it and after eating it one time won’t make it anymore.

    Loved it! Might add a slight bit more orange next time but was lovely!
    Absolutely delicious! Really enjoyed it, the mix of veggies is lovely. We ate it with brown rice and it was great.

    good recipe, halved everything to cook for 2 but migh require more marinade next time. Nowhere near 400 calories though!
