  • Grate 1 tsp. zest from orange. Use small sharp knife to cut remaining peel and white pith from orange; cut orange into bite-size pieces. Mix zest, dressing, soy sauce, sugar and crushed pepper.
  • Cook chicken in nonstick skillet on high heat 5 to 6 min. or until done, stirring frequently. Add ginger and garlic; cook and stir on medium-high heat 2 min. Add red peppers; cook 2 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Transfer to bowl; cover to keep warm.
  • Add dressing mixture to skillet; cook and stir 1 to 2 min. or until thickened, stirring constantly. Add chicken mixture; cook and stir 2 min. or until heated through. Stir in oranges; spoon onto platter.

Substitute 2 cups snow peas for the red peppers. Or, use a combination of peppers and snow peas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, it was restaurant quality. Wow, it was restaurant quality. I used 1/2 a red pepper and added 1/2 a sliced red onion, some water chestnuts and cashews for crunch. Didn't use as much red pepper flakes as the recipe states and it was still pretty spicy, so be careful with that. Will definetly make this again. So many recipes I've tried from this site are so good.

I deboded 4 thighs, so that took a while, and since I made the sauce first it got a little on the hot side.I plan on making again but I'm going to do chicken day before and cut down on pepper flakes. Hint after zesting orange place in container and pour boiling water over, let set 5 minutes, white piff removes easier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was amazingly good, and really easy. This was amazingly good, and really easy. As another reviewer mentioned, I doubled the sauce recipe to have more to put on the rice. I also added some additional veggies--onion, broccoli--increased the ginger slightly, and used sriracha in place of the pepper flakes. I'll be making this one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was absolutely delicious. This was absolutely delicious. I doubled the sauce ingredients and it came out just right amount. I read a few reviews where people didn't think it was orange enough. So instead of cutting up oranges, I squeezed juice, then smashed pulp and added it and it was perfect.

It was a little spicier than I would normally like, but my family loved it. I did sub half the bell pepper with some fresh snow peas for a bit more color. Its definitely a keeper!

I doubled the sauce recipe and left it in the fridge for at least 2 hrs to soak up the zest into the sauce and gain more flavor. I also mix in fresh green beans along with the red bell pepper. I serve over rice and it comes out yummy.
