Since switching my food consumption to low carb, I have a hard time thinking of how I can have some of the old school food I grew up eating.
Imagine my surprise in finding an “Orange Chicken” recipe on a local store website that I would be able to make. (Once we bought oranges, of course.)
I don’t often plan to make dinner for more than the two of us. In simple terms, I was not looking to make leftovers. Since we wouldn’t eat over a pound of chicken breast, I cut the ingredients in half.
My one question on this recipe was about the ginger. Of course fresh would be better, but I didn’t have any and used ground. I wasn’t sure if the measurements were written for fresh. Additionally, next time I make this, I might try chopped garlic, cooked with the chicken, instead of using dried garlic powder.
Finally, SpecialK suggested cooking the chicken in the sauce. I might try that too.

Vegetarians: Cook your favorite vegetable, instead of chicken. Broccoli might be a great substitute.
Kosher: This dish contains no dairy!
Non-meat eaters: see suggestions for vegetarians, above.
I have not tried this with any substitute for honey. I am not sure how that would work, as the honey is the component that really creates this sauce.
