i added 2 tablespoons of butter to this recipe to balance out the soy sauce and it made all the difference!

Easy recipe to put together. I did add veggies to mine
Good orange flavor and easy to make, came together quickly and I made the sauce earlier in the day (just stored in the fridge then tossed it on the cooked chicken). I used low sodium soy sauce to help cut back on the salt. I’d make it again; would be a good lunch prep recipe.

Very good. I would suggest straining the orange juice so there's no pulp.

I loved this recipe! Light and flavorful. A bit spicy for my kids, so I’ve halved the siracha, but I like it spicy it’s quick and filling

Delicious! Would totally make again!

This was a good recipe. The sauce thickened up nicely and it was slightly spicy. I would make this again. Serviced over rice.

Easy to make! I think using fresh orange zest and fresh ginger really makes it flavorful. I didn't have cornstarch or sriracha so I used flour, chili powder and crushed red pepper instead. Will definitely make again!

Fresh orange juice does make the difeence in this dish. I used frozen boneless chicken straight from the freezer, partially cooked them whole, cut them up to it size pieces, the added the sauce to reduce dishes and steps.

Came out really good. Nice orange flavor and not all the fry/batter stuff. My family, friends and I really enjoyed it. Definitely making this again and it was quick. I substituted distilled white vinegar for the rice vinegar cause I had none but still came out awesome.

Made this last night for our Sunday Family Dinner along with homemade egg rolls and pork fried rice. Everyone loved it! Followed the recipe without any modifications and it was quick and easy to make. I will definitely will make this again. Thank you!

My kids loves the recipe. And it's super easy to prepare. The only thing I didn't use is the siracha sauce, and add more orange zest. I will surely cook this orange chicken again! Thank you!

Kids DEVOURED it! Really good recipe! I used fresh garlic (one large clove) and fresh ginger root (about a teaspoon grated). Thanks for sharing!

The entire family loved it. All four of us gave it a thumbs up. I did not alter the recipe but next time I will turn down the Sriracha and add the sesame seeds that are pictured. This recipe will definitely become a family favorite.

Loved this recipe! I used two cans of mandarin oranges (liquid drained), blended in the nutribullet, in place of the orange juice, 1 tsp Sriracha and Coconut aminos in place of soy sauce
