This was AWFUL! Way too much ginger and way too much soy sauce. I'm sure there are much tastier and healthier orange chicken recipes out there, so I'll never try this again, even with modifications.

What a great recipe! I used 1lb chicken breast tenderloins instead, and it was wonderful! A very filling recipe with leftovers to spare for the next day's lunch. We will make this again!
