    I tried this recipe for a family of a fallen police officer. I needed something great...I was not disappointed. Thank you!

    It was pointed out that there was a lack of 'orange' flavor in this recipe. It was pointed out that if you add 4 tablespoons of orange juice to the 'orange sauce' you get a dish with a rich orange flavor that was not at all overpowering.

    Don't forget to add the four tablespoons of orange juice to the sauce. I didn't have sesame oil so I left that out, and didn't have rice wine so I threw in cooking sherry instead. Still was SUPERB. I didn't need to add any more corn starch to thicken it at the end, just kept right on cooking. Serve with rice and it is amazing.

    I found this to be super easy and super yummy orange chicken! We paired it with rice balls and added the extra orange juice and loved it to pieces!! Everyone is always asking for us to cook it again!

    Loved this! Everyone always asks for seconds and for it to be cooked at least once a week. We added the extra orange juice and found it easy to cook as well.

    Anyone who has given up gluten has favorite dishes that they've had to give up, and which are difficult if not impossible to replace.
    For me the list includes numerous dishes of the breaded and fried nature. I'm talking about dishes like fried chicken, fried catfish and chicken Parmesan. Bread crumbs, especially Japanese-style panko breadcrumbs, are one of the things for which...

    Korean food is right at the top of my favorite international cuisine list, especially Korean barbecue. Gal-bi, or beef ribs are my very favorite Korean food. The Koreans know a thing or two about grilling ribs, and good Korean barbecue will hold its own against the very best anywhere. In addition to being tasty, it's easy to prepare and cooks up quickly with very little effort....

    You can doubt it but the studies are pretty clear that it does. It's not a cure and does not replace a gluten-free diet but I have used it myself (and others on the forums) and the number of times I've had reactions from cross contamination...
