    Tessa that looks amazing. I happen to love Orange Chicken. One of the few chicken dishes I like. Not a chicken fan except for this. Excellent! Looks gorgeous too!

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I'm not a huge fan of chicken either – it can be so boring! Luckily this dish is pretty darn flavorful.

    I'm definitely going to have to check this out. I made the original recipe from All Recipes and it failed me miserably. I was disappointed with the watery sauce and lack of flavour. Looking forward to your version!

      I've made the original version too and it was definitely lackluster. Hopefully you enjoy this version more!

    Good luck with the wedding cake, something tells me you'll do great!! Orange chicken is among my favorite take out dishes and though we have a recipe we enjoy, I want to try yours now too πŸ™‚

    That's really cool (and nerve racking I'm sure) that you are baking your Dads wedding cake!
    This dish looks delish! I want to try it

    Oh definitely need to bookmark this one to make! The last concert I saw was Matt Wertz. Next month, I'm going to see The Script and SafeySuit. I LOVE concerts, but don't get to see many now that I live back in Wichita, KS. :/

    Can white vinegar be used? I have everything to make this except the rice vinegar.
