ORANGE CHICKEN!!!

I absolutely LOVE orange chicken, now I know there is no actual orange fruit in this recipe but it's the gravy that gives it that nice deep orange look and it's just wonderful.

The kids and the hubby LOVE it and so do I, it's my go to when I'm craving chinese food.

This recipe is courtesy of my friend Veronica :)

  6. I found your blog through a link of a link. I made your orange chicken last night for dinner. I must say I was a little hesitant about "orange" chicken with no "orange". However, I don't care if it had orange or not because it was simply delicious! My whole family loved it! We will definitely make it again. Thanks again!

  7. Orange chicken is like my all time favorite! My recipe is really different from yours though if you feel like experimenting sometime. It's a family favorite around here where you can't get good Chinese. http://www.3sidesofcrazy.com/2008/06/wwwew-collides-with-tasty-thursday.html
    We did find good Thai just yesterday - LOL
