"Super easy and everyone likes it. I make it as is except for doubling it for a family of four. Great with pot stickers."
"This tasted a lot like the Orange chicken from a Chinese restaurant. Didn't miss the fried meat in it. I used leftover pork tenderloin with with the chicken. That was good also. Will definitely make this again. Very easy."
"Great way to reinvent Chicken and Rice Left-overs. Rave reviews and I had the key ingrediants right in my fridge. I used this to spice up my grilled chix left overs so I added already grilled chix to the skillet and added the Salsa recipe. Scooped it ontop of nuked left over rice pilaf and tada! Chix Salsa! Delish!"
"I made the recipe as is, but the chicken had not absorbed any of the wonderful flavor of the sauce after the 2 minutes of cooking, so I covered the pan and simmered it for about 45 minutes. It really made a difference. The longer cooking time allowed the flavors to marry. I did add a little salt to the recipe. You could also top it with chopped green onions along with the cilantro. Such a simple recipe."
"I loved the unusual combination in the sauce, but felt it was a bit too sweet. Next time I will either cut the marmalade or the brown sugar a bit."
