"Orange ginger chicken is a mouth-watering combination of tender chicken, zesty orange, and spicy ginger. The tangy and sweet citrus flavor of the orange perfectly complements the warm and pungent notes of the ginger, resulting in a flavor explosion in every bite. The juicy chicken is cooked to perfection, soaking up all the flavors of the marinade and creating a deliciously satisfying meal that will leave you craving more."

I found this recipe to be so delicious, very flavorful, and not overpowering but sooo good! I did double the sauce so we could put it on our rice and broccoli . I also used fresh and ground ginger. This dish is definitely company worthy! Thank you QueenBea for sharing this wonderful recipe! I will definitely be making this many times!
