    Delicious! The only thing I did different was use 1/2 the amount of brown sugar and it turned out excellent. Very easy.

    Turn out great. I substitute wild turkey for the chicken. Will definitely be making this quick and easy recipe again.

    Didn't have sriracha so used half the amount of chili paste. Made a nice sweet and spicy dish without all of the weight of the fried breading. Other half scarfed his down and was bummed that I cut down the recipe and didn't make enough for seconds! Will definitely make again.

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

    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

    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!

    Everyone no only finished, but has requested this dish. Just be sure to make enough for seconds!
    Really delicious and so easy to make!

    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.

    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!

    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
