I first made this dish as a teenager when I was browsing through one of my mom's old cookbooks and it is ALWAYS a hit! Sliced chicken breast coated in a sweet and tangy oriental orange sauce served over a bed of hot fluffy white rice. How can you go wrong? Very filling and very flavorful! Enjoy!

For more flavor you can add your favorite stir fry vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, baby corn, pea pods, green onions, bok choy, red bell pepper, edamame, bamboo shoots, water chesnuts, sliced ginger, mushrooms or whatever sounds great to you!
