    Ultimately was pretty good but here are some changes I made / would make: double the amount of orange in the sauce, fry up broccoli and chicken then add the sauce

    This was amazing! I absolutely loved it! I only made the sauce from this recipe and twice as much to get a good coating minus the lemon and brown sugar I used agave nectar also I chopped fresh raw chicken breast and used homemade Hawaiian bread crumbs to make my own nuggets but I did not fry them I baked them and used sesame seeds as garnish.

    The sauce was bad, like really bad. I had to drain it down the toilet.

    Not great . Will not be making again . The sauce the bitter and not much orange flavor

    Everything by the sauce came out grea. It's definitely more of a lemon chicken sauce than an orange chicken flavo.

    I love everything except the chicken nugget part . I will use chicken breast next time but the food was delicious. Thank you

    Delicious! The glaze was citrusy and just sweet enough. The fried rice was really good (I’ve never made it before) so I was happy with how it came out. I’d make this dish again and again. My family loved the dish too.
