A good orange chicken should have just that little bit of sweetness and tanginess to it without being completely overpowering. It should also have that beautiful, slightly sticky gloss and marinade that perfectly coats the chicken. Most orange chicken recipes will have you fry the chicken first to get it nice and crispy, but if you want to make this dish healthier, skip the breading and the frying. Cook the chicken pieces in a skillet, then pour the sauce over and let the chicken and sauce boil until you get that perfect gloss.
A rather easy version of that famouse New Orleans dish.
This sounds like a real winner if done in the slow cooker.
Another recipe my mom found for us to try. It sounds good, except the olives. :P If I’m making this, I’m leaving out the olives.

Traditional chicken enchiladas in rolled corn tortillas and baked.
This one goes in the Holy Cow! file – a lot of vinegary stuff in this recipe!

This looks like such a simple recipe, sure to be a favourite!
A great dish, easily prepared, and can be combined with so many things.
This sounds so delicious – I might try to create a non-crockpot version as well.
This is a quick and easy main dish, something I sort of whipped up on the spur of the moment.
I threw this together rather spontaneously tonight with things at hand. It’s a pretty simple thing, probably can be the basis for something even better-er.
Stir-fries are easy and wonderful and you can experiment with all kinds of things. At one point, I just picked up a bunch of fresh veggies and went at it. This is the result. This recipe requires two separate pans, one to cook the vegetables and other to cook the chicken.
This is a great dish to serve at a party, or take along on a picnic.
I get asked to make this a lot. Before I knew what it was called, I called it “Wild Turkey Surprise.” Now I know better and it’s actually got some legitimacy to it. The basic recipe here started with a recipe from a Sunset magazine cookbook, Favorite Recipes. I’ve modified since then.
This makes a very tasty, fall-off-the-bone, barbequed chicken done in the oven.
