This recipe is fantastic. It's burst with flavor that's balanced and refreshing! My kids loved it and said it's the best orange chicken (comparing it to restaurant/take-out) This is definitely a keeper and will make it many more times.

Very good but needs More sauces

Good but a little too much vinegar in my opinion. also added brokkoli and snow peas to the sauce and it worked out great. Didn't deep fry the chicken and it still tasted good, just important to throw away the marinade of the chicken before pan frying.

Followed the recipe and directions and it came out pretty good! I personally like my sweet with a little heat so I would add more Sriracha to it.
It was easy to make and very delicious, my family is big so I tripled the recipe but it turned out great

This was very good. I doubled the sauce because I always want to make sure I have enough, but I found that was unnecessary. This recipe is well proportioned. I also went a little heavy on the orange zest. Careful with that stuff; a little goes a long way.

Very delicious! By far the best orange chicken recipe. Super easy to make! I've made this recipe multiple times and it's always a hit.

I have tried several Orange Chicken recipes and this is definitely one of my favorites. I even like it better than take out.

More complicated than I had hoped but was very good. Wish I had made more marinade but I was cooking for 2 not 4 next time I'll make the full marinade to get more sauce at the end to coat the chicken. Still it had great flavor. Much better than fast food

I usually do not look into Chinese recipes because I am usually 4 to 6 ingredients short and will not got out to buy Peanut sauce, fish sauce, and the different vinegars etc. needed to pull off a Chinese recipe. I broke down and bought the 3 ingredients I was lacking for this recipe. Is was easy to prepare as written and WE JUST LOVED THIS ONE. Thank you, Mr. DELICIOUS

We love this recipe! It is easy to prepare when you just set out all ingredients first-then stir fry. I cut my chicken breasts while they are still frozen and have thawed just enough to let my knife cut the pieces into cubes. Sometimes I will cut the chicken the night before, cover and put it in the refrigerator. I cook this recipe two to three times a month. If I don't have one of the ingredients, such as Sriracha, it does not seem to change the taste much, just gives another little variety. We always have excellent reviews when this meal is cooked.
