OK but will not make it again. Boosted orange flavor by adding orange extract and frozen orange juice concentrate. Also sauted fresh ginger and garlic before I added the zest. One of the few things I like better at a restaurant. Husband liked it.
Easy and quick to make. My husband loved it. Will make again.
The dish turned out just fine having read the previous reviews and knowing it needs a bit of help. To enhance the flavor after removing the zest from the orange I soaked it in a bit of Canola oil to keep it moist and then used that oil when I added the orange rind to the wok. The second thing I did was to use a tablespoon of frozen orange juice concentrate. This I feel definitely enhanced the orange flavor which was still delicate but enough to get the orange flavor.
I've made this a couple of times and have found it to be a delicious and easy dish to make. I agree totally with the reviews that suggest a boost in flavour with additional chilis and orange and, in fact, find reviews with suggestions very helpful. Offensive reviews such as the one referring to "garbage", I find destructive and say more about the reviewer than the dish.
It was easy to make but kind of bland so I added about 1/2 teaspoon of orange extract and that made it much better. I would make this again if I was really craving it, but didn't become a favorite.
I actually would have rated this recipe higher as it's one of my favourites and I specifically searched for it since I can't find my copy of the print magazine. However, I do agree that it's a bit bland (and you definitely need to double the sauce). I substitute 1 tablespoon of Asian Chili-Garlic paste for the red pepper and it really boosts the flavour. Making it again tonight!
Tastes terrible. Would've rather eaten garbage for dinner
Very nice orange flavor and the chicken still had some crisp to it after glaze was added. Much better than take out and comes together very quickly.
Nice flavour in the end, a trifle tedious to make. I doubled the chicken and tripled the sauce, but I don't think it's meant to be a sauce so much as a glaze and cooking liquid. I taste tested the liquid in the frying pan and found it bitter, so I sprinkled on a tsp of white sugar and it came out quite nicely. Left-overs were very good too.
Like other reviewers, I would recommend increasing the sauce. I doubled the sauce and it was barely enough. I would triple it next time. Fast, easy, very good. The flavor wasn't particularly complex but that's ok because my 1 and 4 year olds liked it has much as the adults did.
Very tasty and easy to make for a weeknight dinner.
Delicious and easy to make - will become a classic in our house,very intense flavour of orange. I doubled the sauce, following some comments I read in the other reviews (but kept the zest of one orange) and it was just enough. I will put more pepper flakes the next time around, for hotter dish.
Tasty and very easy. Usually the restaurant versions are sickening sweet and this recipe was not.
Would almost triple the sauce! Very tasty!
This was just okay. I would give it 2.5 stars if I could, since it's decidedly average. It turned out fine and went together easily, but just lacked a bit on flavor. I can't put my finger on what it needed, but was just a bit bland.
Nice tasty recipe Tony, great flaover when served on a bed of brown rice. My kids loved it, thanks.
