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.
