Chinese Orange Chicken

Chinese Orange Chicken! This dish has a sweet orange flavor and the chicken turns out really moist and juicy. Just make sure not to overcook it, otherwise it will turn out tough. It only took mine about 5 to 8 minutes to cook! I really loved the addition of both green and red peppers and I think it really enhanced the dish. When the meat simmers down with the peppers and garlic in the orange sauce, it really adds a lot of flavor! Very good and a nice change from the traditional stir fry made with soy sauce. Serve it over a bed of cauliflower as a substitute for rice and you have a great Chinese stir fry. Enjoy!
