Do you like orange chicken? If so, this is the recipe for you! Sunday evening I decided to give this recipe a try. At first I was really hesitant. I was so hesitant that I only prepared one large chicken breast… Well, to my surprise. This orange chicken is yummy! So yummy that I made another batch yesterday. J
