Orange Chicken

Stirfrys are part of our normal dinner rotation, although I rarely use a recipe, which is why I rarely post those recipes on this site.  I saw this Orange Chicken over at Closet Cooking, which always has terrific recipes.  Kevin at CC has a great variety of recipes, and he's always using leftovers to make something different later in the week.

If your looking for a recipe that is light and fresh with a familiar taste, try this out.  I served it over steamed rice and made plenty of it for leftovers the next day.
