Spicy Ginger-and-Orange Chicken with Broccoli

    We must have incredible rating inflation on this site. For something to be more than 4 stars, I think you have to be able to serve it to company, since 4 stars = special occasion. This is certainly tasty, but not wow. The sauce is extraordinarily thin and does not stick to veggies or chicken. I would like it a lot more if it were thicker so we wouldn't leave all the taste at the bottom of the plate. The chicken came out looking and tasting like plain jane casper-white chicken. Next time, I would dredge chicken in spices prior to cooking to get a more appetizing look. I would also try to find a way to thicken the sauce. I did not have any chicken drippings left in a nonstick pan and had to add additional oil -- I am not sure how you could unless you were using chicken with skin. I probably will not make this again, as it was time/dish intensive and lackluster.

    Delish! I added red pepper and some sugar snap peas, thought it had tons of flavour. VERY orange-y, so if you don't like orange, you won't like this. This is a great weeknight meal, served over rice. Would be a good side dish to an asian meal.
