This turned out really good. Like another reviewer, I substituted cayenne pepper for the Chinese spice. The sauce had a kick, but not too spicy. I could actually taste the orange - just like takeout, but much healthier. I doubled the sauce like most people did (it's a lot of sauce, but you can then drizzle it over the rice and/or veggies you serve it with, plus have some for leftovers). The only thing I'd caution is be careful not to cook the chicken too long in the olive oil. You definitely don't want to pour the sauce over raw chicken, but it doesn't take long for the chicken pieces to overcook and get rubbery, and then they're supposed to cook in the sauce for another 20 minutes, then more time after you add the cornstarch. The chicken was a bit overdone, but the sauce made it still taste great.
