This was a great recipe....although the sauce was a little tart for my tastes. I'm going to make it sweeter next time. The first time, it was time consuming since I was unfamiliar with the technique of frying the chicken in cornstarch, but next time will be so much easier. Sensational other than that. It was great over fried rice.

I made this last night for dinner per request. I did follow the recipe to the letter and it all appeared to go well till I got to the sauce.... it was very thick for our liking and I had to add water which did cause the chicken to loose the crispness. In all the flavor was good though I tend to agree a little sweetness would have enhanced the flavors in my opinion. Next time I will use less corn starch and add a little more orange & perhaps some honey. I have the basic nows so I can make this work for my family. Thanks Sue!

I doubled the sauce and it glazed on the chicken beautifully. Unlike other reviews I found this a bit on the salty side, not sweet but I did not use light soy as all I had was regular. I should have used kecap or added a tsp. brown sugar. The orange flavor was intense and we loved that! Thanks for a great recipe.

I tried this last night for my husband and I, but it didnt come out right and was very sweet, but went well with the white rice

I liked the crispiness of this chicken. I think the same cornstarch frying method would be great with beef too. I wasn't that crazy about the sauce I found it too syrupy for my liking. Also, I found the soy sauce flavour a little too overpowering and I couldn't taste the sesame at all. A good recipe, the sauce just needs some tweaking. Thanks
