Quick and easy recipes are the name of the game around here. There are times where I can spend a couple of hours on dinner but most days I try have dinner on the table in an hour from start to finish. If I can get a meal ready faster that’s even better.

This recipe for orange chicken takes about thirty minutes to prepare and contains ingredients I have on hand most of the time.
