Orange Chicken Review ..

You can find the recipe here.

So I have a semi-review for this one.

This was the one recipe that I stuffed up a little. 

I forgot to buy the oranges and the orange juice (probably quite a major part of the recipe since it's in the title!! Oops!) I replaced the orange juice with tropical juice and left the orange out.

(this left out the juice of 2 oranges, 1/4c orange juice, and the zest from 1 orange)

It was DISGUSTING!! I am sorry to say I will NOT be making this one again in a hurry!
 (and am wondering what to do with the other one I still have in the freezer!)

It was an oily gross mess. I ended up pulling out the chicken from the sauce and just having it dry on dry rice with boring old steamed brocolli and boiled carrots. It was NOT a nice experience :-(

I really can't say if the original recipe would be a success or not since I deviated from the original! If you make it properly be sure to let me know if it works! I would suggest though leaving out the oil. I really don't think it's needed and it just makes it oily and yuk!

On the plus side, the peanuts I put on top went down a treat!
