Pretty good recipe! Made it twice, the second time I added a bit more brown sugar (1/2 cup) and used less orange zest (1tsp). Surprising orange flavor but not too overpowering when I used less zest. The whole recipe is a bit time consuming with all the mincing, zesting, etc. Plus marinating time... But overall a really flavorful recipe! My husband, who's not on dialysis, really loves this one! Thank you so much for these recipes!! It's making life a bit easier and better tasting without fear of too much potassium, phosphorus or sodium??

Husband needs high protein what happens if I increase chicken and also add a bell pepper? Also how much potassium is in garlic and gingerroot? Recipe looks great! Dietitian comment: Increasing the chicken will increase potassium by approximately 100 mg per ounce chicken and phosphorus by 65 mg per ounce, but also gives an extra 7 grams of protein. Garlic and gingerroot are both low in potassium.

PLEASE, when ingredients are to be divided, please put that on the list! I can't tell you how many times I have put the entire amounts of the ingredients in only to find out later in the recipe that it should have been divided. FOILED AGAIN! Dietitian comment: Sorry for the problem with divided ingredients but we do have a reason for not including it on the ingredient list. We have made this modification so the recipe ingredients make sense on the grocery list. We can add a helpful hint about dividing the ingredients.

Made this recipe for my family tonight. Everyone loved it. It will be a regular in our home from now on. My mother in law is a dialysis patient and I try to cook for her plus my family of 4. Being able to cook a meal that meets her needs and tastes good for all of us is a huge bonus in my book.

Very tasty! I was surprised that the chicken serving is only 2oz. however. (1/4 of one-half Lb.) I expected a serving of meat to be 4 oz.

This was a fantastic and flavorful dish. I was short on time so skipped the marinating step and just cooked the chicken in the sauce, thickened when done. Added a cut up orange bell pepper and it was awesome. All in, took under an hour to make and we were sitting down to a great meal.

I am confused. I put in diabetic and this recipe calls for sugar?? Dietitian comment: Sugar is not forbidden in a diabetes diet. The total amount of carbohydrate (19 grams, 1 carbohydrate choice) is more important than the carbohydrate source. You could use a reduced-sugar brown sugar blend to reduce carbs to 12 grams or omit brown sugar from the recipe if lower carbohydrate desired.

FABULOUS! I made this and due to time constraints, completely skipped the marinating part, just cooked the chicken in a little sauce, thickened the rest up separately and put it all together in the end. Served it with rice and veggies. My husband says he wants it every night from now on! Thanks for this recipe!

This was a good recipe. I served it with low potassium veggies and rice. Tastes really good and lets you have the flavor of orange chicken from the Chinese food places without all the sodium. Wonder what it would do to the numbers if it was breaded chicken.

Yummy, but I felt like it needed something. I think next time I'll add some low potassium veggies, maybe some red peppers or something.

This turned out to be a really tasty dinner for me. I have to reduce ingrediants because I am cooking for one.

Very tasty---my family enjoyed this dish. FYI: the chicken should be well-drained before putting it in the skillet

Just made this and I must say, Very Tasty! I will make this again. Probably not on a week night though it was pretty labor intensive.
