What a wonderful recipe! Made it for the first time this evening, and everyone really enjoyed it. The only modification that I made was to add 8oz of snow peas that I had on hand. Excellent meal for a weeknight, when you want something special!

After reading all of the great reviews, I’m beginning to think I did something wrong. I could not get the sauce thick or sticky in the recommended cook time. I removed the chicken because it was cooked beyond dry and let the sauce continue simmering. The sauce was o.k., but I couldn’t taste any orange flavor at all. It might have been better if the chicken wasn’t so overcooked

This was very tasty. I think it could have used some veggies and a shake of red pepper flakes. I'll make this again

Very quick and tasty recipe. I amended by adding rough chopped onions and a teaspoon of cornstarch to dust the cubed chicken. Plus salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Note: Added cornstarch makes sauce thicken quicker and creates crisped edges on stir-fried chicken cubes.

A really good and easy recipe. I didn't have ginger or garlic paste; however, finely chopped fresh ginger and garlic worked just fine. I sauteed red bell peppers, onion, and carrots and then set those aside while I cooked the chicken and the sauce. When the chicken was done, I added in the veggies and mixed it all together. A definite make again!

I made this pretty much as is, using 1/2 cup orange juice, 1 tsp ground ginger and 1 T. minced garlic (instead of pastes). I served it over parboiled white rice. I was concerned about the sweet-and-sour-sounding combination of ingreds, because my husband hates too much sweet-and-sour, but he raved over this and declared it a do-over. I served peas and carrots on the side, but next time might try adding in snow peas or frozen broccoli in the last few minutes of cooking. A definite keeper!

Super quick and super delicious. I can tell you the sauce as written will reduce into a perfect sticky glaze, but you need to have the pan hot enough. Be advised all the honey will go from glaze to burnt very quickly, once it begins to thicken I don't take my eyes off it. For our tastes we like a bit of sesame oil and hot pepper flakes for extra flavor, but as written this is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing!
