Mandarin Orange Chicken
It was a big hit with everyone and very easy to make! Good if you are in a hurry to make dinner. If you are cooking for a large crowd, could prepare chicken ahead of time and then make sauce just before needed and add chicken and heat through.
Did increase ingred. to: 1 entire large green onion (abt 3 tbsp chopped), 1 tbsp hoisin sauce, 2 small cans mandarin oranges (16 oz), 1 small pkg cashews (3.5 oz/100 g)- chopped in half, extra juice as needed to increase sauce.
I also added to sauce abt 3 tbsp each of red & yellow pepper chopped - slightly sauteed, for added colour.
Took advice of some and added the mandarins and nuts last so they didn't get mushy or soft.
Can see in future adding red pepper flakes to make a bit more spicey and zesty, depending on your guests tastes.
