"We really enjoy this recipe. I double the sauce ingredients because we like it saucy. Thank you for sharing this keeper. Have made it many times."

"Excellent taste. I felt the orange carrots with the orange sauce lacked appeal. Plan to use snow peas next time."

"Nice healthy alternative. Marmalade and orange juice give it a fresh citrusy taste."
