Orange Chicken

This is a popular chinese dish that can be made within 30 min.It has a lovely orange flavour and taste in it..Crispy chicken pieces that are glazed with a sweet orange sauce..YUM YUM...This dish is mild in taste and it has a little sweet taste to it,which was perfect...When I came across this recipe,I thought “What orange in a chicken curry?That must be ridiculous..but once I made this dish,I was completely shut off...This dish tempted me to cook more chinese food like Lemon chicken,Sweet and Sour Chicken,Hot and Spicy Chicken...I will surely make these soon and post it..I beg you all to try this dish and please tell me how it came...
